TRIPOLI, Libya) — Libya's interim prime minister on Sunday confirmed the presence of chemical weapons in Libya and said foreign inspectors would arrive later this week to deal with the issue.

Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril said Libya has no interest in keeping such weapons.See more on the continued presence of NATO in Libya.)

"We would like to assure you that the new Libya will be a peaceful Libya and that it is in our interest to have no weapons in Libya," he told reporters.

Last week, Ian Martin, the top U.N. envoy to Libya, told the U.N. Security Council that undeclared chemical weapons sites have been located in Libya.

At the time, he also expressed concern over command and control of chemical and nuclear material sites.

Jibril, who has announced his resignation ahead of the formation of a new interim government, did not provide any details about the chemical weapons.See more on Gaddafi's burial in Libya.)

"There are international organizations taking care of this issue," he said, adding that representatives of those organizations are due to arrive in Libya later in the week.

A Russian-drafted U.N. resolution, to be voted on this week, calls on Libyan authorities to destroy stockpiles of chemical weapons in coordination with international authorities.

I've absolutely no interest in their polygamy laws. Fucking great that they're handling chemical weapons that way.

Cue some media playing it up like they're only getting rid of some of it, and doing it in a way that erases suspicion that they'd keep it.

That's really good news, they'll likely have all their chemical weapons destroyed before the US does. :lol:
