Leaders of African nations wrapped up the 32nd African Union Summit in Ethiopia's capital Monday with a determination to focus on the needs of African refugees, returnees and internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Speaking at the summit's close, the current chair of the African Union, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, said the leaders resolved to address the issues in a "comprehensive manner".

A communique on the decisions reached is expected to be released Tuesday.
