Lybian leader Moammar Gadhafi pledged for all nations to follow his country's example and eliminate all weapons of mass destruction.
"This is a true opportunity for real historic peace," Gadhafi told journalists in Brussels Tuesday during his first official visit to Europe in more
than 15 years.
"Libya did its duty when duty had to be done by force," Gadhafi said. "Libya fought America and shot down its pilots and aircraft, but now time has
come to reap the fruit and the seeds of this armed struggle, namely peace and stability.
We say to America and we declare to Europe, we say confidently and we say it loudly, we should not waste this opportunity."
Speaking through a translator, Gadhafi said: "Libya calls on all countries, from America to China, to discard and get rid of all WMD. Libya has
become an example to be followed.
"The noose will be tightened gradually on those with weapons of mass destruction.
"Libya has secured itself more by discarding such programs. ... The whole world pledges and honors the security of Libya because Libya has forged the
road on the path of peace."
