US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte to visit Libya next week

Filed under: HIV,Justice,Libya,Uncategorized — admin @ 5:36 pm

I’ve already posted on the public ambivalence of the US State Dept on the Libya death penalty trial — see post here.

John Negroponte, the number 2 in the State Dept will visit Libya next week, the highest-ranking US official to visit Libya since the US and Libya resumed full diplomatic relations last May. The talks will focus on Darfur. The US must ensure that the case of the six condemned medics is also high on the agenda.
