The diplomatic move means the US and other countries will now be able to unblock some $30bn in frozen assets and assist the Libyan opposition. It’s a financial boost for the National Transitional Council of Libya, but it also adds to their credibility.

该外交举动意味着美国和其他国家现在能够开启300亿美元冻结的资产的一部分，帮助利比亚反对派。这对利比亚国民过渡委员会财政方面来说是一个 巨大的鼓励，同时也增加了他们的可信性。由于美国仅仅认可这个国家而不是政府，措辞选择非常谨慎。国务卿希拉里?克林顿称，美国将认可国民过渡委员会为利 比亚合法的执政机构，直到确认临时执政当局。
