Nasser and Qaddafi. The interiors indicate this meeting took place in Cairo, not Tripoli.
Libya and the Brother Leader went through a long period of isolation in the West, espcially after the 1988 Lockerbie boming, which killed 270 people and was believed to have been planned from Libya. However, despite a bizarre speech in front of the UN in 2009, world leaders began engaging with Libya in the mid- 2000's. The U.S. restored full diplamtic relations with the country in 2006.
U.S. President Barack Obama met Qaddafi at a Group of 8 meetting in Italy in 2009.
