The US government said Friday it will go ahead with plans to establish normal diplomatic relations with Libya despite pressure to slow the process from families of Americans killed in the Pan Am 103 airliner bombing. The United States will remove Libya from its list of nations that sponsor terrorism next week, following a congressionally required comment period, said Assistant Secretary of State David Welch. He said he will go to Tripoli, the Libyan capital, next month. "Libya has put its terrorist past behind it," and the administration of President George W. Bush sees no reason to delay, Welch said.
