This article focuses on trade cooperation. Trade cooperation between Libya and the U.S. was suspended in 1986. The Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya has been off-limits to U.S. citizens since 1986, when Libyan agents blew up a Berlin discotheque frequented by American servicemen, and the Reagan administration retaliated by bombing residential areas of Tripoli and Benghasi, killing 101 people including Gadaffi's adopted daughter. In 1999, however, the U.S. began secretly negotiating with Libya through backdoor channels, and in August 2003, the Gadaffi regime agreed to pay $2.7bn as compensation to the families of Lockerbie bombing victims.
