Nadir revealed this on Thursday when he paid a courtesy to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Amb.  Olukunle Bamgbose, in Abuja.

The envoy said that the establishment of the office which was approved by his government was first of its kind in Africa

He said that operations of the office would strengthen military relations between the two countries.

According to the Minister, it has been scheduled that the Egyptian Minister of Defence would be visiting his Nigerian counterpart to perfect the taking off of the office.

He noted the excellent bilateral relations between Nigeria and Egypt, particularly with regard to military cooperation.

The minister stressed the need for both countries to re-establish political consultations with a view to addressing matters affecting their bilateral relations.

He said that reopening the platform for consultation will require both ministries agreeing on a Memorandum of Understanding.

Bamgbose in his remarks commended the visiting envoy for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Nigeria.
