“Conscious of the aspirations of the Libyan people for democracy and development, the Albanian government backs the activities of the National Transitional Council and its program for a democratic Libya, and considers the council to be the legitimate representative of the Libyan people,” the ministry said in a statement.

“The Albanian government is ready to engage with the council and help in the installment of peace and democracy in Libya,” the statement added.  

The Interim Transitional National Council is a political group formed to represent rebel groups seeking to overthrow the four decade-old regime of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

To date, the council has been recognized as the sole legitimate government of Libya by 29 countries, including the Unites States and the European Union member states.
