BRUSSELS, May 27 (Xinhua) -- NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu on Friday said that the alliance has not received a letter from the Libyan government proposing a ceasefire.

"You may have seen press reports about a letter from the Gaddafi regime proposing a ceasefire. It was not sent to NATO," she told a press briefing at NATO headquarters.

"Anyway, words are not enough. The regime has made similar statement before ... What matters are actions, not words. Those actions should be verifiable and credible," she said.

Libyan Prime Minister Baghdadi al-Mahmoudi has reportedly sent a letter to several countries proposing a ceasefire.

The British newspaper The Independent said it obtained a copy of the letter, which proposed an immediate ceasefire to be monitored by the United Nations and the African Union.

It also called for unconditional talks with opposition groups, amnesty for both sides of the conflict, and the drafting of a new constitution, according to the newspaper.
