TRIPOLI, Libya — Libya's government spokesman says they are offering to withdraw their fighters from cities if rebels do the same, as part of a peace deal.
Moussa Ibrahim says a Libyan envoy made the offer while meeting Russian leaders on Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters late Thursday, Ibrahim said the offer was the furthest the government had gone since fighting broke out against rebels seeking to overthrow the Libyan regime led by Moammar Gadhafi. He said as part of the deal, NATO would also have to halt its strikes of Libyan targets.
There was no immediate comment by rebel leaders based in the eastern city of Benghazi.
Also Thursday, he said two NATO strikes targeted a ship in the Tripoli port.
