Annan in Geneva, Meets With Leaders of Cameroon and Nigeria
New York, May 10 2005 2:00PM
United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is in Geneva today, where he was scheduled to meet one-on-one with the leaders of Nigeria and Cameroon ahead of Wednesday's mini-summit on the work of a UN-led panel dealing with the two countries' boundary dispute.
Mr. Annan is expected to meet individually with Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo of Nigeria and Paul Biya of Cameroon before hosting a working dinner for both of them.
The Cameroon-Nigeria Mixed Commission was established as a follow-up to the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) ruling in October 2002 on the dispute between Cameroon and Nigeria over their 1,600-kilometre land border, extending from the Lake Chad to the Bakassi peninsula, and maritime boundary into the Gulf of Guinea.
