*LIBYAN WAR* Libya's PM Entrusts Weldon With Documents For Hillary Clinton

As negociations wind down, a glimmer of hope for peace in Libya has emerged Friday and WPIX-TV reporter Larry Mendte has exclusive access that information.

Although former U.S. Rep. Curt Weldon was not able to meet face-to-face with Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi, he is set to meet the country's prime minister, who will give him a wax-sealed document.

Weldon has been entrusted to hand-deliver the classifed document, which are intended for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, marking the biggest step forward between Libya and Western nations. It also is the most direction communication between the prime minister and Clinton.

Once Weldon obtains the documents, he and his delgation will leave the country and head to the US Ambassador's office in neighboring Tunisia,

The documents are said to have a list of concessions, a call for more talks and the call for a special envoy to meet for further negociations, WPIX-TV has learned.

What is not in the wax-sealed document is the proposal for Gaddafi to step down.

Weldon was personally invited to Libya by Gaddafi, himself, who wanted Weldon's help in brokering a deal with NATO and the United States to bring peace to Libya.

Gaddafi unexpectedly cancled the face-to-face meeting on Thursday, despite a successful meeting between Weldon and Gaddafi's chief of staff.

WPIX-TV has learned that Weldon's mission to Libya is not the only meeting intended on ending the conflict in Libya.

The Turkish government is set to meet with Libya's top officials and ther have been several so-called "back channel" meetings with European nations.

A meeting between members of the African Union and Gaddafi is scheduled for Saturday.
