All is set for the Regional Security Cooperation Working Group meeting of the United States-Nigeria Binational Commission (BNC) scheduled to be held in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, next week Thursday, August 15.

The Government of the United States yesterday announced that Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman will lead the U.S. delegation to the meeting.

“Participation in the Commission meeting reflects the commitment of the United States to our critical bilateral relationship with Nigeria. The United States supports the aspirations of the Nigerian people for a peaceful, prosperous, stable, and democratic future,” says says a statement by the U.S. Department of State.

“BNC meetings,” according to the statement, “provide a venue for sharing ideas, perceptions, and best practices on matters of mutual concern, which are addressed in working groups, with this meeting focusing on regional stability and civilian security. The August 15 meeting will further define challenges of mutual concern to both nations, and outline joint responses for future partnership.

“The U.S. Government expresses in advance its gratitude to the Government of Nigeria for its friendship, cooperation, and hospitality on this occasion, and looks forward to productive talks.”
