Gaddafi warns against Middle East Terrorsim, WMD
Libyan leader Moamer Gaddafi, according to the Saudi newspaper asharq alawsat warned the African leaders in the African Summit in Khartoum against the Middle East weapons of mass destruction and nuclear weapons. He described the region as volatile and full of dangerous conflicts.
He said in a document distributed during the summit that Africa is not related to the Middle East and if Africa tried to tie itself with the Middle East, it will get involved in terrorism, weapons’ trafficking and terrorist groups.
The Libyan leader requested discussing the controversial document among Arab African Leaders. Egypt is an example for the Middle Eastern/Arab/African country.
President Mubarak did not attend the Summit because he has a cold. Rumors are saying that he is avoiding confrontations with the Sudanese leadership after the killings of the Sudanese refugees in Cairo last month. It is good that he did not attend, he would have not avoided the Libyan Leader statements.
