Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-03-04

The Arab League said Thursday it was considering a mediation plan for Libya put forward by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (pictured), amid reports Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has backed the proposal.

REUTERS - Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said on Thursday a peace plan proposed by Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez to end the crisis in Libya was "under consideration".

Al Jazeera news network reported that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and Moussa had agreed to Chavez's plan to send representatives from several countries to Libya. "No," was Moussa's response when asked if he had agreed to the plan proposed by Chavez, a friend of Gaddafi.

"We have been informed of President Chavez's plan but it is still under consideration," Moussa told Reuters by telephone on Thursday. "We consulted several leaders yesterday," he said, without providing a deadline to decide on the plan.
