ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the foreign policy of Libya. As reported, the new directions in Libya's external policy which were initiated by Libyan President Muammar al-Qaddafi in the beginning of twenty-first century have important implications for the U.S. administration's war on terror. It is also reported that since the suspension of United Nations' sanctions, Qaddafi has moved to end the commercial and diplomatic isolation of Libya, and in August 1999, he called for the creation of a United States of Africa. Also, he has welcomed the expanded investment and trade essential for infrastructure revitalization of the petroleum sector from Europe, which suggests that the earlier failure to expand oil output was more the product of global oil pricing than a lack of U.S. oil.
