Libya's rebels have accepted an invitation to open a representative office in Washington, top United States official Jeffrey Feltman said on Tuesday.

"I delivered a formal invitation to the council for the opening of a representation in Washington," Feltman told a press conference, referring to the rebels' National Transitional Council (NTC).

"We are happy they accepted it," he added.

Feltman, the US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, is in Benghazi for talks with the rebel leadership during a three-day visit.
