Envoy: Libya “cheated” by US
Libya feels “cheated” that it will remain on the US State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism this year even though it has made security concessions, the country’s envoy to Washington said on Friday.
According to Reuters, Ali Aujali, chief of the Libyan Liaison Office in Washington, blamed US politics. “I’m sorry to say but it looks like we have been cheated,” Aujali told the US-Libya Business Association. “We can’t find really a good response to my country why (there has been) this delay. The only explanation is that this is the US domestic politics,” Aujali said.
Aujali said his country had not been notified of any decision on the terrorism list.
