Libyan opposition council may open Washington office: US

The Libyan National Council, representing groups in opposition to Muammar Gaddafi, may set up a representative office in Washington, U.S. Undersecretary of State William Burns said on Thursday.

"We've made it possible for the Libyan National Council to put up a representative office in Washington," Burns told a Senate committee. He noted that the United States had suspended, but not formally broken, diplomatic ties with the Gaddafi government.

Burns stressed that U.S. does not have a full picture of the Libyan National Council, but said "those that we have met have struck us as being positive and serious."
