Tripoli, Sep 19 (IANS) Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) has failed to reach an agreement on an interim government, as some members could not solve their differences, Xinhua reported.

The NTC Sunday failed to reach an agreement on an interim government which was due to be unveiled on the same day, NTC executive board head Mahmoud Jibril told a press conference in Benghazi.

He said the NTC could not solve their differences over a few positions in the transitional government at the end of the negotiations.

The council, which now unofficially rules the North African country, would carry on with negotiations and announce the establishment of the government as early as possible, he said.

Jibril had earlier said the interim government would include representatives from different regions of Libya, including areas that are still under the control of Gaddafi supporters.

All military units which had been fighting forces loyal to Gaddafi would also be brought under the umbrella of the new government.
