Ambassador insists Gaddafi 'must not go'

Libyan ambassador Saadun Suayeh this afternoon said he would not give in to demands by Libyans in Malta calling for his resignation.

Reacting to the demands of some 250 Libyans protesting outside the Libyan embassy in Attard, Dr Suayeh said he represented the interests of all the Libyan people, including those who were protesting against the regime.

Speaking in a telephone interview, the ambassador said the deaths which had taken place in Libya were 'regrettable' and he wanted to see a full investigation into the bloody events of the past few days in Benghazi, Tripoli and other cities.

The ambassador said, however, that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi 'should not go' .

"His presence for the time being is definitely a guarantee for the country's unity," the ambassador said.
