As Prime Minister

During his term as PM (in 1968), Libya creates, with Saudi Arabiamarker and Kuwaitmarker, the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC), in order to coordinate production, refining, transport, and commercialization of oil between the three countries. On July of that same year, Libya signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Opposition from exile

During Qaddafi's presidency he goes into exile, first to Londonmarker, then to Parismarker. In 1977 he arrives to Egypt, where, in 1982, he gives birth to the Libyan Liberation Organization, joining the Libyan National Salvation Front (LNSF), the opposition in exile.

In 1984 the LSFN reivindicates the attempted coup against Qaddafi. After this, the Libyan government decides the creation of suicide units to kill all of its enemies, foreign and domestic, including survivors of former Libyan political parties. These units would be involved in the assassination attempt at al-Bakkoush in Cairomarker, which was disbanded by the Egyptian police. This incident led to a diplomatic incident between the two countries.
