OSLO, May 13 (Reuters) - The solution to Libya's bloody uprising must be based on political action and not only military might, Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday.

"The solution to the problems in Libya are political, they cannot be solved by military means alone," Stoltenberg told reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Oslo.

"We are very much supporting all efforts to find a political solution to the challenges we are facing in Libya," he added.
