Libya's prime minister said his country wants to be rewarded for opening up its nuclear sites for inspections, and noted that the United States must lift sanctions by May 12 or his government won't have to pay $6 million to each family of the 1988 Lockerbie bombing victims
In an interview published Friday, Prime Minister Shukri Ghanim told The New York Times that Tripoli wants to be paid for turning over nuclear materials.
Ghanim told the Times that his nation wants to "accelerate to the maximum" the dismantling of its unconventional weapons programs so that Libya could be declared free of the weapons in the next few months. (Albawaba.com)
