Libya Abandons WMD, India Unveils New Missile

by Adil Haque

The New York Times reports that the United States has decided to restore full diplomatic relations with Libya and remove it from the list of countries designated as state sponsors of terrorism. Condoleezza Rice called the moves “tangible results that flow from the historic decisions taken by Libya’s leadership in 2003 to renounce terrorism and to abandon its weapons of mass destruction programs.” Rice implied that similar benefits await Iran and North Korea should they adjust their own policies.

In related news, The Hindu reported over the weekend that India’s “[i]ntermediate-range ballistic missile Agni-III, with a range of over 3,000 km, is technically ready for launch.”
