Regional Security SummitThe United States Government has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for recently hosting a Regional Security Summit in Abuja.
Mr. Buhari on May 14 played host to Presidents Francois Hollande of France, Paul Biya of Cameroon, Patrice Talon of Benin Republic, Idriss Deby of Chad, Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger Republic and Faure Gnassingbé of Togo during the 2nd Regional Security Summit.
Other heads of state at the summit were Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon, Macky Sall of Senegal and Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea. The U.S and European Union sent representatives.
The 2nd Regional Security Summit was a follow up to the first conference of such, which held in Paris, France, on May 17, 2014, following the escalation of terrorists’ activities in Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.
The U.S Alternate Representative to the United Nations, David Pressman, in a statement he issued on Friday, said that the U.S Government was encouraged by Buhari’s decision to host the security summit for leaders committed to ending the activities of Boko Haram.
“The United States is encouraged that under President Buhari’s leadership, a security summit of regional leaders, committed to carrying out a ‘sustained, comprehensive approach’ against Boko Haram was organised.
“This, couples with rights respecting security operations and civilian efforts to restore stability, promote governance and economic development to break the cycle of violence in all countries where Boko Haram is active.
“The UN system, including the Special Representatives for West Africa and the Sahel and Central Africa, should continue to assist the Lake Chad Basin region to implement such a comprehensive strategy”, Mr. Pressman was quoted as saying in the statement.
