Russia to Help Libya with Nukes

On the heels of reports that Russia is helping Iran develop missile technology, Moscow appears to be ready to increase its dealings with Libya.

The Russian minister for emergency situations has announced that Russia is ready to start talks with Libya on overhauling one of its nuclear research centers.

A Russian news agency quoted unidentified Russian government sources as saying Moscow’s cooperation with Libya has been “slowed down” by the international embargo against Muammar Gadhafi’s state.

Those sources added that “no firm ground exists for the sanctions since Libya has denounced terrorism and is taking steps in compliance with the demands of the international community.”
