STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY
Anthony Lake, the National Security Adviser, met yesterday with families of the victims of the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. He assured them of the Administration's unwavering opposition to Libyan terrorism and its continuing effort to bring about justice on behalf of Libya's victims. Representatives of the Victims of Pan Am Flight 103, the Families of Pan Am Flight 103, and Justice for Pan Am 103 were present.
Mr. Lake indicated to the families that the Administration has urged support from other countries for additional sanctions, including an oil embargo, in association with the upcoming UN Security Council review of Libyan sanctions and beyond. The sanctions have been in effect for three years, and Libya has failed to comply. Further action is warranted, and the United States will work with others to find ways to bring about Libyan compliance.
Mr. Lake also stated that the addition of the Libyan suspects to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List was part of a stepped up Administration effort to bring them to justice.
