US/Arab relations continue to deteriorate due to the illegal war in Iraq started by lying Neocons:
Libyan Foreign Minister Abdel-Rahman Shalgam met Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other officials Thursday in a meeting underlining an improving bilateral relationship. The U.S. side raised human rights cases and lingering compensation issues stemming from Libya’s past involvement in terrorism. VOA’s David Gollust reports from the State Department.
Rice has met her Libyan counterpart twice before on the sidelines of U.N. meetings in New York. But the State Department visit by Shalgam was the first by a Libyan foreign minister in 36 years, and reflected a relationship that has improved markedly since Libya renounced weapons of mass destruction and accepted responsibility for acts of terrorism.
The last major US visit to Libya was over 20 years ago, in April, 1986.
