Visit of Muammar al-Gaddafi, Guide of the Great Revolution of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, to Romano Prodi: meeting with Members of the College

40 views

Muammar al-Gaddafi, Guide of the Great Revolution of the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, paid a visit to the EC. It marked his first visit to Europe in many years, preparing the ground for a full normalisation of relations between Libya and the European Union. This visit follows the remarkable progress achieved during the past few months towards the reintegration of Libya within the international community, including on the issues of weapons of mass destruction, commitment to peace and security in the region, settlement of the Lockerbie and UTA cases and the lifting of UN sanctions, as well as a clear reorientation towards a more open economy. Libya has also announced its intention to join the Barcelona Process in full, accepting its acquis and intending to play its full part in the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership where it belongs. This visit gave an opportunity for Romano Prodi and a number of other Members of the EC to discuss with Muammar al-Gaddafi a wide range of issues, including the full participation of Libya in the Barcelona Process, the prospects for joint efforts towards peace and stability in the Mediterranean region, as well as EU future support to economic and political reforms in Libya, including on human rights reforms. Other topics discussed were the prospects for co-operation on the fight against illegal immigration and on border control, fisheries, as well as the respective development efforts in Sub-Saharan Africa. Particular attention was also devoted to the full settlement of the still outstanding issues between Libya and Germany, as well as to the case of the Bulgarian medical staff detained in Libya.
