Libyan leader Moammer Kadhafi will be the first Arab leader to return to Iraq despite international sanctions, his daughter said in an interview published Tuesday.
Aisha Kadhafi, who spent two days in Baghdad after arriving on Saturday on the first Libyan flight to the country in 10 years, said the colonel would visit Iraq soon.
She told Al-Rafidain magazine: "My father has always worked for a radical solution to the questions of sanctions on Iraq ... and, God willing, he will soon be (in Iraq) for the first visit," of an Arab leader since the embargo was enforced in 1990.
She met President Saddam Hussein on Sunday and "saluted the resistance of the Iraqi people, and Iraqi women to American aggression," it said.
