Libya and nuclear technology

Libya signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 1968 and ratified it in 1975 [http://www.nti.org/e_research/profiles/Libya/3939.html Country profile] , "Nuclear Threat Initiative" ] . In December 2003, it agreed to dismantle its nuclear program, which Libya claimed was organized to counter Israel's nuclear program. The United States and Great Britain dismantled the Libyan program with assistance from the International Atomic Energy Agency .
