France plans to host a meeting of world powers implicated in the Libyan conflict next week, Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Monday, welcoming the rebel forces' entry into Tripoli.


"We have reached the tipping point. This is a subject of great satisfaction. France took risks, calculated risks, but the cause was just," Juppe told reporters in Paris.  

"France has proposed an extraordinary meeting of the Contact Group at the highest level from next week," calling on the strongman's remaining supporters to lay down their arms.
