Political differences have always characterized Libya-US bilateral relations that led sometimes to even military confrontations between the two states. Gaddafi's foreign policy that is based on pro-liberation struggle against colonialism and imperialism was not welcomed by Washington.
Later, both sat at the same dining table for dinner hosted by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi whose country is hosting the annual Group of Eight (G8).
Leader Gaddafi is attending the summit as president of the African Union. He is also there to present the views of the growing stronger African Union with regards to regional and international issues.
