Denmark denies officially recognizing Libya rebels

COPENHAGEN - Denmark denied on Thursday that it had officially recognized Libya's Transitional National Council (TNC) of rebels, but said it did recognize the organization as a relevant partner for dialogue.
Earlier on Thursday a Libyan rebel spokesman said that Denmark, Spain and the Netherlands had joined Italy and France in recognizing the TNC rebels fighting to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.
"We have not taken steps to formally recognize the TNC," Danish foreign ministry spokesman Jean Ellermann Kingombe said. "There is a willingness to engage (with the TNC) but no formal recognition."
