On the 25th Anniversary of the bombing of Pan American flight 103 over Lockerbie on 21 December 1988, the Governments of Libya, the United Kingdom and United States of America reiterate their deepest condolences to the families of the victims of this terrible crime. We want all those responsible for this most brutal act of terrorism brought to justice, and to understand why it was committed. We are committed to cooperate fully in order to reveal the full facts of the case. We will all provide full support to the investigation team to enable them to complete their enquiries successfully. We are striving to further deepen our cooperation and welcome the visit by UK and US investigators to Libya in the near future to discuss all aspects of that cooperation, including sharing of information and documents and access to witnesses.
