A Libyan official says Argentina’s visiting president has offered her country’s help in developing nuclear energy in the North African nation.
Libyan Cabinet official Mohammed al-Mesmari says the Argentine leader also signed agreements in trade, agriculture and science during her meeting with Moammar Gadhafi.
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez’s six-day tour of North Africa also included stops in Egypt, Tunisia and Algeria. The trip was meant in part to help ensure developing countries aren’t forgotten in efforts to solve the financial crisis.
Argentina has also helped build atomic reactors in Algeria and Egypt.
Libya began opening up to the world in 2003 when Gadhafi renounced terrorism and weapons of mass destruction
