"The Palestinian state, the Palestinian Authority and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) recognizes the CNT and hope that the Libyan people regain their normal lives soon," Nabil Abu Rudeina, President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesman, told AFP. "We respect the Libyan people's commitment in the fight for freedom." (AFP)
