Baku-APA. Britain hosted a special international conference on Libya here on Tuesday to discuss the situation in Libya, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Opening the conference, British Prime Minister David Cameron outlined three major goals for the conference, namely, strengthening the commitment to implementing UN resolutions 1970 and 1973, reaffirming importance of urgent humanitarian aid to Libya and calling for a political process that helps create conditions for the Libyan people to choose their own future.

In addition, the participants will forge a wide group to act as a focal point for international thinking on Libya and a forum to coordinate long-term support to the people of Libya, Cameron added.

Earlier ahead of the conference, British Foreign Secretary William Hague highlighted launching the political process for Libya is one of the contents to be discussed in the conference.

The conference came as NATO prepared to fully take over command and control of military operations in Libya from the United States.

All members of the coalition in military operations in Libya, as well as the UN, NATO, and the Arab League are attending the conference, which has brought together over 40 foreign ministers and representatives from key organizations, such as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
