Gaddafi reappeared in public to welcome South African President on his arrival in Trpoli

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, has reappeared in public on Monday by welcoming South African President Jacob Zuma, on his arrival in Tripoli, as shown by the images of the Libyan state television, which at no time informed of where that has made the meeting. This has been the Libyan leader's first appearance since last May 11 when he met with tribal leaders Libyans.

In the footage broadcast by Libyan state television, Gadhafi appears greeting the South African president and several senior South African government before walking down a hallway. Subsequently, Qaddafi and the South African delegation are seated in armchairs in a large white room. On arrival at Tripoli airport, Zuma was greeted by a delegation of diplomats from the country, but not Gaddafi, who would be later.

He also received a band of musicians and a choir of children singing "We want to Qaddafi," while waving the national flag and pictures of Gaddafi. President Zuma has arrived in the capital with the intention of reaching an agreement and outline the strategy which sets the power output of Qaddafi, a visit that occurred hours after the NATO Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen , to ensure that his "reign of terror" was coming to an end.

This is the second visit of the South African president, who has taken the role of mediator in the eyes of the Atlantic Alliance and the African Union, the country since the conflict started in February, a first visit that was marked by no progress to reach the agreement that was reached Qaddafi away from power after more than 40 years and reduce the violence and the climate of tension that exists in the country.

"We can not allow this conflict to be extended in time. That could lead to an unfortunate situation for Libya and Gaddafi himself," Zuma said the South African television before meeting with the Libyan leader. After the meeting, Zuma assured the Libyan media that encentro with Qaddafi discussed "the need for the Libyan people the opportunity to resolve the problem themselves," and said that Qaddafi was willing to declare a ceasefire if the stop NATO bombing, which remain almost daily.

According to the Libyan state agency Jana, Qadhafi has used the meeting to report "violations" of NATO to the UN resolutions, evoking attempts to "political killings", in reference to the many attacks he has received Bab al-Aziziyah, Gadhafi's residence, "the destruction of infrastructure and sea blockade.

Something that as this contradicts the resolution adopted by the Security Council United Nations which stated that the intervention of the international coalition aimed to protect civilians.
