Libya Reiterates Condemnation of US Over Sanctions Law
Libya has denounced a decision by President George W. Bush to extend Washington's economic sanctions imposed on Libya in 1986, following terrorist attacks on Americans.
A high-ranking Foreign Ministry official, Hassuna al-Shawush, has been quoted by channelafrica.org as saying that the policy of sanctions is outmoded and called on Washington to give up policies of bargaining, domination and provocation.
Shawush said Libya hopes for a more courageous decision from the American administration which will end the sanctions to allow for a normalization of relations. (Albawaba.com)
