Washington, Apr 20 (PTI) The US today praised the Libyan opposition and said the rebel group has done a good job in its effort to oust longtime ruler Muammar Gaddafi and over the period of time has become more coherent.
"The opposition in Libya is becoming more coherent," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.
"It was a group of disparate individuals that has formed in the face of Gaddafi's onslaught and oppression, and has done a good job, frankly, at coalescing, at forming a leadership, at creating certain values and communicating those values and ideals. We're encouraged by what we've seen," he said in response to question.
Toner said the US is assessing the needs of the Libyan opposition.
"Certainly, there's humanitarian needs that are at the forefront right now, considering the pressure they're under.
