A delegation of Libyan officials is in Venezuela to discuss possible peaceful solutions to the war in the North African country, Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday.

A vocal opponent of military action by Western governments, Chavez is also a close ally of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and has proposed talks between rebels and the government.

"Who gave them the right to do this, it's crazy," Chavez said of NATO military strikes. "Because they don't like the leader Gaddafi, because they want to take Libya's oil and water ... they are chucking bombs everywhere."

"We are dedicated to finding a political solution to the drama being lived by the Libyan people. A delegation sent by Gaddafi has arrived in Venezuela and we are seeking a peaceful outcome," Chavez said during a speech to workers.

He did not give details of which officials traveled with the delegation.

Last month, Chavez proposed a international commission visit Libya to seek negotiations between rebels and the government, but the idea did not gain traction and was rejected by Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam.

Venezuela has been mentioned as a possible safe-haven for Gaddafi if he ever flees his own country, but Chavez officials have denied that option is being considered.

The African Union is also seeking a non-military solution to the violence in Libya that calls for an immediate cessation of hostilities followed by a transitional period and political dialogue.
