Libya move puts pressure on Israel
Advertisements [?]
Libya is preparing to open up its military installations to inspection by the outside world, as the Arab League says Israel should be next to give up its nuclear weapons.

A Libyan delegation has already met the head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog Dr Mohamed El Baradei in Vienna.

The talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency took place within 24 hours of Libya's announcement that it is abandoning all weapons of mass destruction.

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw says the advanced state of Libya's nuclear weapons program emerged during nine months of secret negotiations.

"They acknowledged to us that Libya's developing a nuclear fuel cycle intended to support nuclear weapons developments and our team was given access to projects underway at more than 10 sites, including uranium enrichment," he said.

"Libya had not acquired a nuclear weapons capability but it was close to developing one."

The Arab League's Secretary General, Amr Moussa, says Libya's decision puts pressure on Israel to make similar moves.
