Libya And United States Sign Agreement Over Outstanding Lawsuits

Posted:

The United States and Libya have signed an agreement to settle all outstanding lawsuits from victims of terrorism on both sides, which officials state will clear the way for diplomatic relations between the two sides to be restored.

According to reports there were twenty six lawsuits filed against Libya by American citizens over terrorism attacks, and three filed against the United States by Libyan citizens over terrorist attacks. The details of the deal have not yet been made public, but were discussed by an anonymous senior official from the Libyan government.

The deal was confirmed by the State Department spokesman, Robert Wood, who said: “The agreement is designed to provide rapid recovery of fair compensation for American nationals with terrorism- related claims against Libya.”

He added: “It will also address Libyan claims arising from previous U.S. military actions. The agreement is being pursued on a purely humanitarian basis and does not constitute an admission of fault by either party.”
