Description - My Vision by Muammer Gadaffi
In September 2003, the international embargo and sanctions imposed on Libya for more than a decade were raised by the UN Security Council when Colonel Gadaffi announced that Libya would give up its nuclear weapons. In addition he agreed to compensate the families of the victims of the Lockerbie bombing and the UTA Flight DC-10 disasters that occurred in the late 1980s. This remarkable gesture showed Gadaffi's commitment to seeing Libya rejoin the international community after many years of isolation. In the spirit of reconciliation, Tony Blair flew out to Tripoli declaring that Libya was now an ally in the fight against global terror. This is an intelligent and gripping account of how a new dawn in Arab-Western relations came about.
