Foreign Office statement on Musa Kusa

Foreign Office statement on Musa Kusa

30 March 2011

Foreign Office spokesperson confirms that senior figure from Qadhafi's government arrived at Farnborough Airport on 30 March from Tunisia.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said today:

"We can confirm that Musa Kusa arrived at Farnborough Airport on 30 March from Tunisia. He travelled here under his own free will. He has told us that he is resigning his post. We are discussing this with him and we will release further detail in due course.

Musa Kusa is one of the most senior figures in Qadhafi's government and his role was to represent the regime internationally - something that he is no longer willing to do.

We encourage those around Qadhafi to abandon him and embrace a better future for Libya that allows political transition and real reform that meets the aspirations of the Libyan people".
