(Reuters) - Nearly 60 countries have recognized Libya's National Transitional Council. Here is a list of those countries:
United Arab Emirates
* The African Union called on August 26 or the formation of an inclusive transitional government in Libya, saying it could not recognize the rebels as sole legitimate representatives of the nation while fighting continued. The stand was at odds with AU members that have announced their recognition of the National Transitional Council
* China has not formally recognized the NTC, but has said it had "always attached significance to (its) important role."
* Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Moscow might establish formal relations with the rebels if they were able to "unite the country for a new democratic start."
