THE United States has denied it is moving to ease its policy toward Libya, and says a Washington Post report to that effect is incorrect. State Department spokesman James Rubin said restrictions on US citizens traveling to Libya remain in place and that permission being granted for the Libyan UN ambassador to visit Washington earlier this month is not an indication the policy was being changed. Neither, he said, was the lack of US opposition to Libya’s participation in a UN peacekeeping force for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
US officials have said repeatedly they will not review the position on Libya until after it can be established that Tripoli fully co-operated with the trial of two former Libyan agents accused of the 1988 Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. That trial, before a Scottish court that is sitting in the Netherlands, is set to begin in early May.
