ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia - A former Libyan prime minister participating in talks at the African Union says his country is ready to talk with opposition rebels and accept political reforms,
possibly including elections.

An offer of talks and possible political reforms could be a big step forward toward ending the current conflict.

Abdul-Ati al-Obeidi said Friday that the violence in Libya is being carried out by "extremists" and foreign intervention.

Al-Obeidi is a member of the Libyan delegation at African Union talks in Ethiopia.

Earlier Friday a top African Union official called for a transition period in Libya that would lead to democratic elections.
