Iran Lauds Hague Court Decision on Libya Case

Xinhua 03-MAR-98

TEHRAN (March 3) XINHUA - Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman
Mahmoud Mohammadi has lauded the decision by the
International Court of Justice in the Hague on Libya's case
as a "realistic and logical approach befitting an
international agency."

The international court had taken a positive and
significant step for bolstering the agency's profile as a
legal and judicial international institute and
strengthening the norms of legal applications in the
international arena, the Iranian official news agency IRNA
Tuesday quoted Mohammadi as saying Monday.

The Hague court Friday ruled that it had jurisdiction to
hear Libyan complains against Britain and the United States
over their demand to extradite two Libyan suspects who were
alleged to have bombed a U.S. airliner that exploded over
Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988, killing 270 people.

Mohammadi expressed hope that the ruling would trigger a
peaceful settlement of the issue and ultimately annul the
U.N. sanctions imposed on Libya since 1992 for its refusal
to hand over the two Libyan suspects for trial in Britain
or the United states.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi Monday called on the U.N.
Security Council to lift the sanction immediately and
demanded compensation for the harm Libya had suffered.
