Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will travel to Portugal, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco from September 4 to September 7. The Secretary's visit to Libya signifies a new chapter in U.S-Libyan bilateral relations. Secretary Rice will be the first Secretary of State to travel to Libya since John Foster Dulles in 1953.
As the Secretary makes this visit, we thought DipNote's readers would be interested in a timeline of significant events in U.S.-Libyan relations and a pictorial history of some past and recent moments.
