Late 1975


Gaddafi Buried in Tripoli

user posted image
Colonel Gaddafi, 1972.

Comrade Muammar Mohammed Abu Minyar Gaddaf, the Leader of Libya since the Revolution in 1969, whose untimely death in a yet unknown illness has caused grief in the whole of the country, has been buried in accordance with Islamic customs at his birthplace in the town of Sirte. Tens of thousands of loyal supporters attended the funeral, at which his successor President Abdessalam Jalloud held an excellent eulogy. The President empathized the need to move on, as the grief is so great it may consume us all if we delve with it for too long, and to continue on the path of peaceful, non-aligned pan-Arab and pan-African Socialism which the Colonel always advocated.

Meanwhile in a separate announcement, the Revolutionary Command Council has announced that in order to properly honour the memory of Colonel Gaddafi, the RCC will permanently withold publication of the Colonel's forthcoming masterpiece, The Green Book. The first part, entitled The Solution of the Problem of Democracy: The Authority of the People, was due to be published in late 1975, but will now be kept private as President Jalloud's newly appointed administration does not feel it is sufficiently competent to complete the unfinished and preliminary manuscript in such a way that it would be respectful towards the Colonel's memory.

Plan for Peace

user posted image
Libya looks outwards and upwards.

Mr. Abdul Monem el Houni, Interim Minister of Foreign Affairs, spoke to the Libyan press this afternoon, to announce a series of diplomatic initiatives undertaken by the Government by the new Prime Minister Abdul Ati al-Obeidi (recently appointed by his predecessor, President Abdessalam Jalloud). Key among the new "Plan for Peace", the simply named road map announced by the successors of our dearly departed Colonel Gaddafi with the goal of attaining good relations with all foreign powers, are three specific issues in Libyan foreign relations: The Gulf of Sirte, the Aouzou Strip, and Atomic Weapons. In the two prior cases, the Minister was able to announce that immediate measures had been taken to resolve the issue of the Gulf's legal status, and that a proposal for a solution to the border dispute with the Republic of Chad had been forwarded to the country's new government. In the third case, the Minister simply stated that ideas for ways to ensure that the African continent and the Middle East remain free of nuclear weapons, ensuring that such devastating war will not reach the region, are currently being conceptualised.

The "Plan for Peace", which is not yet released in full to the public, also appears to contain a framework for Libya's foreign relations on a wider scale, which includes a focus on three principles: Stability, Dialogue, and Non-Alignment. Our foreign relations analyst here at The New Dawn, Comrade al-Lars, has commented the following on the subject: "It seems likely that Comrade President Jalloud will focus on solving the country's immediate issues, before taking on the world like our great Colonel did. One probable target for this will be the topic of nuclear weaponry, as many foreign liars have time and time again claimed that the Colonel worked to gain such armament. It is likely the Comrade President will seek to address such suspicions. "

Fears for Gulf War

Bahrain's borders.

THIS JUST IN: News of a large invasion by the Qatar Armed Forces of the Hawar Islands, a disputed archipelago on the border between the State of Qatar and the State of Bahrain, caused shockwaves in the Arab world these last few days. The shock increased as the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which has recently normalized diplomatic relations with the Libyan Arab Republic, declared it would counter the Qatari force with a four times as large Saudi one, aiding the Bahrain Defence Force in protecting the isles, which - due to their inhospitable condition, especially due to the scarcity of fresh water, are used for very limited fishing and tourism - are mostly uninhabited. When asked to comment, Mr. Abdul Monem el Houni, Interim Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Libyan Arab Republic, declined to do so. Although no transcript has been gained of the proceeding yet, it does however that the Libyan delegates to the United Nations have put forward a plea for calm and diplomacy, possibly alleging that there is a chance of foreign, non-Arab involvement in the dawning conflict.

The dispute between the two countries goes back a long time, with decades of conflict in the 19th century leading to the Qatari–Bahraini War of 1867–1868 and colonial British intervention. Later territorial disputes have concerned a north-eastern reef called Fasht ad Dibal and the town of Zubarah, although the Hawar Islands - which although deserted by man has a diverse ecosystem, filled with Socotra cormorants, Arabian oryxes, sand gazelles and marine dugongs - has been the most prominent point of contention. This dispute dates back to colonial times in 1936, but have laid largely dormant until recently, especially as Emir Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar (known for carrying out a 1972 coup against his cousin and predecessor, Emir Ahmad bin Ali Al Thani) was largely thought to focus on other matters.

Early 1976

The First Days of the Year, in Summary

user posted image
Fresh coinage of the Libyan Arab Republic.



Libya Signs the NPT

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty, or NPT) was officially ratified by the Libyan Revolutionary Command Council on the 5th of February. The NPT, a global framework to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and promote peaceful atomic energy programmes, was opened for signature in 1968 and came into force in 1970. Although Libyan representatives did sign the Treaty in 1968, ratification has been delayed by the busy state of the Revolution since then. With the Libyan Arab Republic now conclusively established, the Ministers of Energy and Defence could make the announcement in a joint press statement, where nuclear weapons were condemned and the country's nascent atomic energy projects praised. At the present, a significant number of nations have delayed or avoided ratifying the NPT, including Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Spain, South Africa, India, Pakistan, and many others.



First National Park Opened

Partially inspired by recent Kenyan initiatives to save the wildlife of the savannas, and also by President Jalloud's "Mediterranean Environmental Organization", the Department of Nature in Tripoli has announced the founding of Libya's first National Park. One of several similar reserves planed, the "El-Kouf National Park" - a territory of 35,000 hectares (86,000 acres) along northeastern Mediterranean coastline - contains both significant amounts of marine and terrestrial areas, protecting both sea- and land-based flora and fauna. According to biologists from the University of Tripoli, the El-Kouf area contains up to 90% of all the plant species found across the Libyan Arab Republic, from coastal dunes to tangled maquis shrubland among the inland limestone hills, and also holds many endangered animal species such as the striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena), Arabian wolf (Canis lupus arabs), African wildcat (Felis silvestris lybica), Golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), Egyptian vulture (Neophron percnopterus) and the rare Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus). The biodiversity continues in the National Park's marine areas, from the greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) and the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) on the shores to several species of dolphin in the waters.



Visit to Korea Delayed

The Office of President Jalloud announced on Friday that, in light of recent events in the Korean peninsula (especially allegations regarding a terrorist plot against a British Airways plane), the President would postpone his planed state visit to Pyongyang, the capital city of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which he was due to visit in December 1976. A formal apology for the delay has been issued to the Korean embassy in Tripoli, citing security reasons and requesting the DPRK to take a firmer stance against international terrorism, as Libya has done in recent months. The Korean visit was set to be part of a wider trip to the lesser-known friends of Libya on the Asian continent, with an itinerary that - beyond the now cancelled Pyongyang tour - includes the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, the Mongolian People's Republic, and the State of Japan. As President Jalloud has already visited the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China in the past, and the security situation in Laos, Cambodia and Burma does not provide for a safe political milieu, those countries will be visited at a later stage.



IN BRIEF

  • Economies Resurrected Post-Blockade - With the American-led NATO blockade of Libya's coastlines lifted, trade across the Mediterranean has begun anew, with the economies of Italy and Malta recuperating from the disruption that the blockade - now amicably concluded with the new government - had caused. All is well.

  • Kurdish Refugees Offered Asylum - In a surprise announcement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has offered Kurdish refugees - reportedly including former members of the Republic of Kurdistan - humanitarian asylum in Libya, an offer which includes housing in a yet undeclared city and the issuing of refugee travel documents. The move is said to have no political considerations, being solely altruistic.

  • Scandinavian Visit Discussed - Although no official itinerary has been released yet, rumours about that President Jalloud will chose an unexpected area to visit first after his state visit to Chad - namely, Scandinavia. With relations on the up with the Kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, the President is likely to make this a priority visit, perhaps in the summer of 1976.

  • Libyan Investment in Pan-African Pipeline - Following the United States' declaration that it would fund 80% of the Central African megaproject's needed investments, the Ministry of Finance have followed up with announcing that the LAR would cover 2% of the necessary costs. Although a small investment, it is quite significant for Libya, being both geographically uninvolved and a comparatively minor economy on a global scale.

  • Controversy at the IMF - As Indira Gandhi's martial law and the massive unrest caused by her recent actions continue, Libyan representatives to the International Monetary Fund stirred controversy on Tuesday, when they issued several statements raising concerns regarding the proposed IMF bailout of the Republic of India, highlighting previous fiscal irresponsibility from the Gandhi administration and the issue of their nuclear stockpiles.

  • Commitment to "One China" Continues - Commenting on the surprising decision of the Hungarian People's Republic to join the imperialists of the world in opening relations with the illegitimate ROK and becoming the first country to formally recognize the Tibetan government-in-exile, Interim Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdul Monem el Houni stated that Libya remains committed to the "One China" Principle.

  • Western Sahara Recognized - A brief communique has been released by the Libyan Arab Republic in solidarity with the people of Western Sahara, with a full diplomatic recognition of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic as the legitimate voice of the Sahrawi people. The Foreign Ministry has called for both Mauritania and Morocco, our fellow Arab brothers, to act calmly and rationally to avoid overt bloodshed.

  • Summit in Kampala - Following the already legendary "Rumble in the Jungle", Comrade Idi Amin's capital city of Kampala will now play host to another significant event - the 1976 Summit of the Organization of African Unity. This, the result of a diplomatic push by Libya, will undoubtedly strengthen the Ugandan government, which after a few rough years is trying to reestablish itself as respectable and dignified.

  • Anti-Zionist Chess Tournament - As an alternative to the pro-Zionist 22nd Chess Olympiad, to be held in Haifa, Israel from October 24 to November 15, the Arab League - and many other progressive states - are set, as previously planed, to hold a "Against Chess Olympiad" in Tripoli in late 1976. It is one of many recent Arab initiatives to build fraternal ties.
