EU chief: EU ready to normalize ties with Libya
07/24/2007
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said Tuesday the European Union could move to normalize trade and political ties with Libya now that it has released five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor. "We hope to go on further normalizing our relations with Libya. Our relations with Libya were in a large extent blocked by the non-settlement of this medics issue," Barroso told reporters. He said the 27-nation bloc could move to include Libya in regional trade and aid ties with other Mediterranean countries. The EU is also keen to cooperate closely with Libya on migration issues.
