The Summit said any agreement reached should be signed with Somalia.

In the meeting were Presidents Ismail Omar Guelleh (Djibouti), Yoweri Museveni (Uganda), Salva Kiir (South Sudan) and Hassan Sheikh Mohamud (Somalia).

Others were Africa Union Commission Chair Moussa Faki, United States Special Envoy to Sudan ambassador Donald E. Booth, representatives of the UN Secretary-General, Turkey, the Arab League, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.
