Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has threatened on Friday to the European Union stop supporting the fight against international terrorism and illegal immigration, according to the official agency Jana. The colonel has made these statements while European leaders began a meeting in Brussels in which it has discussed the strategy to adopt in the Libyan crisis.

"If Europe does not endorse and ignores the active role of Libya in the fight against immigration and to guarantee stability in North Africa and throughout Africa, Libya is forced to retreat in the fight against terrorism and to completely change its policy relationship with al Qaeda, "Colonel Gaddafi has threatened in a message transmitted by that agency.

Tripoli will "fight against illegal immigration for millions of blacks to go to Europe," added the dictator. For its part, the presidential meeting of the Peace and Security Council of the AU rejected "any foreign military intervention" in Libya and asked the Government and rebels to cease hostilities immediately and to initiate a dialogue to resolve the conflict in the country.

"The Council reaffirms its commitment to respect the unity and territorial integrity of Libya and rejects any foreign military intervention," said AU Commissioner for Peace and Security, Ramtane Lamamra, at the end of the meeting held on agency's headquarters in the Ethiopian capital. While, in the field of battle, troops loyal to Qadhafi announced that they had recovered the oil port of Ras Lanuf, intensifying its counteroffensive against insurgents worn, according to Reuters.

The television channel Al Jazeera said the Gafafi aviation bombed a refinery and residential areas east of the town.
