The People’s Republic of China has not granted recognition to the NTC, but officials have met with its representatives several times. Liberia, Malawi, Peru, and some Western governments have severed ties with Gaddafi’s government, but have not recognized the council. Several other countries have established unofficial ties with the National Transitional Council, with a number of those countries establishing a permanent diplomatic presence in Benghazi to liaise with council officials.

The African Union Commission’s Chairman Jean Ping has

accepted that Muammar Gaddafi was a defeated man but stopped

short of officially recognising the NTC, reiterating the bloc’s

call for an inclusive government ahead of elections.
