Libya: Passage of Legislation on Compensation for Claims

Secretary Condoleezza Rice
Washington, DC
August 1, 2008

Yesterday, Congress passed important legislation that will further efforts to obtain fair compensation for American citizens in their claims against the Libyan government. I applaud the Congress’ action. We hope administration efforts, working with the Congress, will help our fellow citizens close a painful chapter in their lives. The United States also looks forward to expanding its relationship with Libya and its people as we resolve contentious issues from the past.
