WASHINGTON (AP) - The State Department says it is looking for ways to expand cooperation with Libya.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met Tuesday in Washington with Mutassim Gadhafi, the son of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. The younger Gadhafi is the country’s national security adviser.

State Department spokesman Robert Wood called the meeting productive and focused on security cooperation. He would not say if Clinton raised human rights issues.

Relations between Libya and the United States have warmed since Moammar Gadhafi renounced terrorism in 2003 and gave up efforts to develop nuclear weapons. The move ended years of international isolation.
