Muammar Gaddafi Hoped For An African-Arab Union

An Enlightening Interview with Gaddafi in 2009 with Euronews

Even after 40 years in power, Libya`s Colonel Gaddafi has some bold ambitions. His ideas for African unity involve the creation of a United States of Africa modelled on the EU – an idea he set out at the recent African Union summit.

The Libyan leader, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the African Union, is attending the G8 summit in Rome. Before leaving for Italy, he spoke to Euronews from Tripoli.
