Blair to see Gaddafi

Tony Blair is set to visit Muammar Gaddafi:

Prime Minister Tony Blair plans landmark talks with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in recognition of Tripoli's decision to renounce weapons of mass destruction, Britain said Tuesday.

An encounter between Blair and Gaddafi would mark a further step in Libya's reintegration into the international community following its surprise pledge in December to abandon plans to develop atomic and other mass destruction weapons.

"We are hoping very much that a visit can be arranged as soon as convenient but no date has yet been fixed,'' said Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.
