British Foreign Secretary William Hague says London will hold an international conference on the Western powers' military intervention in Libya next week.

The London-based summit of world foreign ministers, scheduled for Tuesday, would offer political leadership for the response to the crisis in Libya.

Hague said the foreign ministers would discuss the situation in Libya and the two United Nation's resolution adopted with respect to the North African country.

The latest resolution on Libya called for sanctions and the imposition of a no-fly zone over the country, following Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's violent crackdown on the revolutionaries.

In a statement, Hague said that “a wide and inclusive range of countries will be invited,” mainly from the region, however, the UK government did not reveal which countries would participate in the summit.

"It is critical that the international community continues to take united and coordinated action in response to the unfolding crisis. The meeting will form a contact group of nations to take forward this work," Hague added.

The summit is expected to focus on how to pressure the Gaddafi regime.

The Western governments have not yet agreed on who should take the command of the military actions in Libya war. French forces were the first to drop bombs on Libya but soon the United States assumed leadership. However US President Barack Obama has said that Washing is seeking to handover the command to NATO.

The coalition forces have reportedly escalated their aerial attacks on several strategically-important cities across Libya, killing many civilians.
