Kenya has officially announced recognition of the authority of the Transitional National Council (TNC) in Libya and asked the council to foster dialogue and a negotiated settlement to the six-month Libyan crisis.

Acting Foreign Affairs minister Prof George Saitoti issued a statement declaring that with the “impending collapse of the regime of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi” Kenya would work with the new authorities in Tripoli to restore peace to the North African nation.

Saitoti issued the statement a day after all officials of the Libyan embassy in Nairobi switched recognition to the TNC. On Sunday, embassy officials lowered the green flag of the Gaddafi regime and approved measures to hoist the red, green and white one of the TNC.
