This topic was discussed on World Have Your Say on 3 March 2011.  Listen to the programme.

There are reports that Col. Gaddafi has accepted an offer from Venezuela to mediate in Libya's political crisis after talks with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

The plan would involve a commission from Latin America, Europe and the Middle East trying to reach a negotiated outcome between the Libyan leader and opposition forces which have seized control of large areas of the North African oil-producing country.

Details of the plan could be announced at an Arab League meeting in Cairo on Thursday.

Amr Moussa, head of the Arab League has confirmed that a Venezuelan peace plan is "under consideration".

"We have been informed of President Chavez's plan but it is still under consideration," he told the Reuters news agency on Thursday. "We consulted several leaders yesterday."

There has been no comment yet from the opposition.

What do you think of this development? We hope to speak with the Arab League on the programme today. Last night, many of you questioned the African Union's response to Libya. We are requesting a guest from the AU to take your questions today too.
