Gaddafi blamed the foreign media for distorting the truth about the incidents in Libya, and said the Turkish and World public opinion would change in favor of his administration in near future.

Gaddafi blamed the foreign media for distorting the truth about the incidents in Libya, and said the Turkish and World public opinion would change in favor of his administration in near future.

Pointing the finger at Al Qaeda, Gaddafi said : "They are trying to pull certain people to their side to fight along with them. First, they released the inmates in prisons. And they paid the youth to fight with them. Although there are other groups involved, I can't see any other responsible than Al Qaeda. They are the real responsbile force."

Also touching upon recently raised claims in the media that he was going to leave the office Gaddafi said "What am I supposed to leave to who? I don't have any authority. I am not a president nor government leader to render my resignation. I am just a member of the Libyan population."

Gaddafi said the foreign media was being mislead by Al Qaeda.

Gaddafi said "When the police and military residences were attacked, Al Qaeda organization sent the news in text messages to foreign media. At that time, foreign correspondents were not in Libya. They sold a simple peaceful protest as if Libyan soldiers opened fire on the protesters and killed many people. This is how it was covered in the foreign media."

Gaddafi underlined that once they find out the truth about the incidents, the world public would change attitude and take sides with him.

Giving out friendship messages to Turkey, Gaddafi pledged for a safe return to Turkish workers, who fled the country in the face of the uprisings.

Gaddafi said "We are all Ottomans. This is our history, we can't run away from this. My wish was for Turks not to leave Libya. Our doors are always open for their return. I will provide the Turkish workers with a safe return as soon as possible."

Gaddafi pointed to Libya's importance for regional stability and said "Our presence provides security and stability in our region. We prevent Al Qaeda's activities. If Al Qaeda takes over Libya, the whole region -including Israel- will spiral into chaos."

Reminding that the future of Libya depends on the people's decision, Gaddafi called for calm in the country.

He also noted that the incidents in Libya were totally different from the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, both of which resulted in the resignation of leaders.

Gaddafi said the incidents in Libya were not against himself but against Al Qaeda
