BENGHAZI, Libya - The rebel National Libyan Council said on Monday there was no room for broad dialogue with the government of Moammar Gadhafi and any talks must be on the basis he quits.

Jadallah Azous Al-Talhi, a Libyan prime minister in the 1980s who is originally from eastern Libya, appeared on state television reading an address to elders in the rebel city of Benghazi calling for national dialogue to end the bloodshed.

Asked about the address, rebel official Ahmed Jabreel told Reuters: "Talhi is a close acquaintance of mine and he is widely respected in Libya as a man who stood up to Gadhafi. But we have made it clear all along that any negotiations must be on the basis that Gadhafi will step down. There can be no other compromise."
