World Leaders React to Qaddafi’s Death

Upon hearing of the news of the death of the deposed Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi, international leaders released welcoming statements and expressed regret for those who were killed during his regime as they called for national reconciliation and a swift move toward democracy. Calling it a "momentous day" in Libyan history, President Barack Obama says the United States looked forward to becoming Libya's partner following the death of Qaddafi. "We're under no illusions. Libya will travel a long and winding road to full democracy. There will be difficult days ahead. But the United States, together with the international community is committed to the Libyan people. You have won your revolution and now we will be [your] partner as you forge a future that provides dignity, freedom and opportunity," Obama said. British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Thursday that the day should be spent remembering those who had suffered during Qaddafi's rule. "I think today is a day to remember all of Colonel Qaddafi's victims. From those who died in connection with the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, to Yvonne Fletcher in a London street, and obviously all the victims of IRA terrorism who died through their use of Libyan Semtex. We should also remember the many many Libyans who died at the hands of this brutal dictator and his regime," he said. Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on Friday described the event as a "day of triumph" for the people of Libya. "This is a historic day for the Libyan nation. It's a day of triumph of the human spirit, and I want to pay tribute to the thousands of Libyans, who with courage, have fought for freedom in their nation." Qaddafi's death is expected to end the months of conflict that saw an estimated tens of thousands lose their lives. According to NTC officials a formal announcement of Libya's liberation is expected to be made on Saturday. By: Nadia Idriss Mayen Al Arabiya with Agencies
