Libya has denied allegations by the US officials that Iran had supplied the toppled regime of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi with weapons.
Mustafa Abdel Jalil, Libya’s interim leader, dismissed the recent comments by the US officials that Iran had provided the former Libyan regime with hundreds of special artillery shells for chemical weapons, IRIB reported on Monday.
Washington has so far failed to back up the claim with concrete evidence or genuine documents, Abdel Jalil stated.
The shells, filled with highly-toxic mustard agent, have been uncovered in recent weeks at two sites in central Libya. They are reportedly being kept under heavy guard and round-the-clock surveillance.
The US officials alleged that the chemical weapons had been custom-designed and -produced in Iran for Gaddafi’s dictatorial regime.
