ISTANBUL (AP) - Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini says delegates from more than 30 countries have decided to recognize the Libyan opposition as "the legitimate authority of Libya."

Frattini spoke on the sidelines of the fourth meeting of the Contact Group on Libya in Istanbul on Friday.

The Libyan opposition is represented by the Transitional National Council.

Frattini told reporters: "The entire Libyan Contact Group decided to recognize the TNC as the legitimate authority of Libya."

The recognition would amount to a serious upgrade of the diplomatic status of the Libyan opposition in the world.
