Libya denies CIA report it is seeking to develop weapons of mass destruction
Libya denied Wednesday claims by the CIA that it was trying to acquire or expand weapons of mass destruction.
"These are allegations the CIA habitually puts out to serve interests hostile to the peoples" of other states, said foreign ministry spokesman Hassouna al-Shawesh, noting that Triploi is a signatory of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, AFP reported.
The CIA made its claims in a report submitted to Congress last month that was made public on Tuesday. (Albawaba.com)
