This is about as clear as it gets:| |
Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi says he gave up his plans to develop weapons of mass destruction, because such weapons would have exposed Libya to danger, rather than protect it.Got that right.
It was his first public reference at an international gathering to Libya's surprise decision last December to renounce its arms of mass destruction program. Colonel Gadhafi told leaders from other African countries that individual nations should not try to develop such weapons.
"Any national state that will adopt this policy cannot protect itself. On the contrary, it would expose itself to danger," he said.
