on Libya's Pledge to Eliminate Its WMD Programs
19 , 2003
D.C. -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following
statement on the announcement late this afternoon by President Bush
that Libya has acknowledged its nuclear and chemical weapons programs
and has agreed to eliminate them:
pledge to dismantle its weapons of mass destruction programs is
welcome news. Libya has taken steps over the last few years to improve
its international standing, including taking responsibility for
the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am passenger jet over Lockerbie, Scotland.
If Libya follows through on its commitment to dismantle its weapons
programs and rejects terrorism, it would be on its way to joining
the circle of civilized nations."
