Libya-South Africa, Politics, 6/8/1999
Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi is to head to South Africa at the beginning of the coming week.
Gaddafi will discuss with South African President Nelson Mandela the development of the situation in Africa continent, the current wars on the African continent, as well as the African summit that will be held in Algeria.
President Mandela praised the efforts and support presented by Gaddafi to the South African blacks against the rule of the white minority under apartheid.
He said, "Those who say that we should not have contact with Gaddafi do not have morals, and those who feel annoyed by our national relations with President Gaddafi may throw themselves in the sea."
The South African president played a prominent role in persuading the Libyan president to hand over the two Libyan suspects in the bombing of a Pan Am jet above Lockerbie, Scotland in 1988.
