In a brief interview with Libyan media and public television in South Africa, Zuma said that Gaddafi "is prepared to declare a truce to end fighting in their country." The South African president said the Libyan leader has accepted the roadmap of the African Union, which provides for a cessation of hostilities, including the NATO bombing, to open a negotiation process that lays the groundwork for a new political landscape in the North African country.
