Chaired by President Ernest Bai Koroma, the committee is deliberating on matters pertaining to pending reports (interim and supplementary) submitted by C 10 Permanent Representatives in New York on the Question of the Equitable Representation on and Increase in the Membership of the Security Council and other related matters. The leaders would also be briefed on the Committee of Ten Foreign Ministers meeting held in Kampala on the 20th of October 2009 during the AU Special Summit on Refugees, Returnees, Returnees and Displaced Persons in Africa.
