PARIS (AP) — The leaders of Britain and France said on Thursday that dozens of world nations have pledged to support Libya‘s new leadership, though they warned that the struggle to stabilize the country is not over.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said NATO will continue operations for as long as needed to protect civilians in Libya, even after the ouster of Col. Moammar Gadhafi, the country’s longtime leader.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said at an international conference Thursday, “We are committed to returning to the Libyans the monies of yesterday for the building of tomorrow.”

Both spoke after leaders and envoys from 60 nations and world bodies such as the United Nations and NATO met in Paris for talks with Libya‘s rebel-led National Transitional Council to map out Libya‘s future.
