France says it's passing messages to Gadhafi

France says it is passing messages to Moammar Gadhafi's regime in liaison with the rebel movement and allies.
French Foreign Ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said Monday that "There are not direct negotiations between France and Gadhafi's regime but we are passing him messages."
He said in answer to a question in an online briefing that the messages "are simple and without ambiguity" _ a political solution must including Gadhafi leaving power and quitting politics.
The Libyan rebels have denied contacts with Gadhafi's people. However, the Libyan strongman's daughter, Aicha Gadhafi, said in a June 30 interview on France-2 TV that both direct and indirect negotiations are being held between her father's authorities and the rebels. She didn't elaborate.
