After assuring that Niger suffers, as well as the Nigerian territory, numerous casualties due to the attacks of the radical Boko Haram group, the host President Bazoum pointed out that ‘we will do everything necessary to secure the two African States,’ reported the Blueprint website, citing official sources.

During the exchange with his interlocutor, Buhari ruler also thanked former Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou for ‘his understanding and sacrifices’ to help stabilize the region.

In his turn, the current Nigerien President Bazoum, who won the presidential elections held on April 2, said that both West African States have common interests; thus, maintaining a good relation is important.

The leader also expressed Niamey’s willingness to cooperate with Abuja on security issues.

Currently, government troops from countries in the area such as Nigeria, Niger and Chad are fighting against Boko Haram and other extremist organizations, whose violent actions in the north of this country and around the Lake Chad basin have left thousands of deaths, wounded and kidnapped.
