TAGS: PARM MNUC KNNP LY TC
SUBJECT: CONVEYING U.S. CONCERNS ABOUT LIBYAN WMD
DEVELOPMENT POST UN SANCTIONS

REF: STATE 282619

(U) Classified by CDA Richard Albright for reasons 1.5 (b)
and (d).



1. (S) On October 14, Charge delivered reftel demarche on
USG concerns about Libyan WMD development after the lifting
of UN sanctions to MFA Assistant Undersecretary for
Political Affairs Abdullah Rashid Al-Noaimi. Al-Noaimi said
that the UAEG's views about Libya had not changed after the
lifting of UN sanctions. The UAEG encourages Libya to
"behave," but the Libyans haven't changed. He said that
"they are crazy, but we have to deal with them," and that
the UAE is lucky that Libya is not a neighbor.



2. (C) Al-Noaimi said that the UAE is going to send an
Ambassador to Libya after the position had been vacant for a
long time. However, he added that this was unrelated to the
lifting of UN sanctions. Rather it was in response to Libya
having sent an Ambassador to Abu Dhabi. He commented that
MFA staff were not lining up to serve in Libya
