    SYNOPSIS: In Cairo on Saturday, President Anwar Sadat of Egypt held his first session of talks with four visiting African Heads of State, forming a peace mission to discuss the Middle East crisis. The visiting Heads of State are to make return visits to both Egypt and Israel later this month. Taking part in the discussions were President Yakubu Gowon of Nigeria....
    President Ahmadou Ahidjo of Cameroun, and President Leopold Senghor of Senegal (wearing spectacles), and President Joseph Mobutu of the Republic of Zaire, formerly Congo-Kinshasa.

    President Sadat of Egypt is understood to have continued the talks with the four African Heads of State into the evening, at the Hilton Hotel. It is understood that there was a detailed open discussion concerning obstacles believed by Egypt to be hindering a settlement. Delegation sources tended to play down President Senghor's call in Israel for a dialogue between the parties involved. It was stressed that the delegation realised the difficulties of bringing the two sides together, and that President Senghor had not called for direct contacts. These would be completely unacceptable to Egypt, which has always refused to sit down at a negotiating table with Israel.
