Libya's former foreign minister Mussa Kussa will not be representing rebels in any way at talks in Qatar being held ahead of an international meeting there on Libya, an official for the insurgents said Tuesday.

"He's not connected to (the rebel) Transitional National Council in any way or shape," media liaison official Mustafa Gheriani told AFP.

Kussa was leaving Britain on Tuesday for Qatar, the Foreign Office said earlier.

"We understand that he is travelling today to Doha to meet with the Qatari government and a range of other Libyan representatives to offer insights in advance of the contact group meeting," a Foreign Office spokeswoman said.
