EU FMs want Libya’s frozen assets handed over to rebels

The Council of Foreign Ministers of the European Union (EU) has called on member states to hand over Libyan assets, frozen in Europe, to the Libyan rebels of the National Transitional Council (CNT), in order to enable them establish their own administration, according to an EU statement issued here Tuesday.

However, the issue caused disagreement among EU member states, with many believing that it required a decision by the UN Security Council, the body which adopted Resolution 1973 mandating the use of force to establish a no-fly zone over Libya.

The International Contact Group on Libya, which met last week in Istanbul, Turkey, recognized  CNT as the legitimate government body in Libya
