At the end of the "seven-member" Commission meeting, Leader Moammar Kadhafi met with leaders and heads of delegations from African countries and regional and international organisations.
They were Presidents Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal, Olesugun Obasango of Nigeria, Amadou Toumani Touré of Mali, Omar Hassan El Beshir of Sudan, Idriss Deby of Chad, Abdelaziz Bouteflika of Algeria, John Kofuor of Ghana, Mamadou Tandja of Niger, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Ahmed Abdallah Sambi of the Comoros and Laurent Gbagbo of Cote d'Ivoire.
