British Foreign Secretary William Hague, co-chairing a top-level diplomatic meeting on Wednesday, said the forum would put pressure on Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi to step down.

He urged participants to agree on "maintaining pressure on the Gaddafi regime by implementing the (UN) Security Council resolution and enforcing sanctions... making clear that Gaddafi has to leave."

The Doha meeting will "strengthen" the pressure on Gaddafi, who has ruled for more than 40 decades, he said ahead of the one-day meeting.
