The Libyan President asserted that sanctions that have been imposed on Libya, which inflected heavy losses on Libya and neighboring states, are null and void in light of the recent decision of the International Court of Justice when applying the Montreal agreement on civil aviation on the case of Lockerbie, adding that the UN has noting to do with this case.
The Libya President wondered why the UN Security Council does not impose its resolutions on Israel concerning the need to withdraw from the occupied Arab lands while the US and Britain are trying to impose UN Security Council resolutions on Libya.
