Ajumogobia, Clinton to meet next week

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Odien Ajumogobia and the US Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton will meet in Washington D.C. next week.

The meeting is coming two months after the working group on energy  and investment of the U.S.-Nigeria Bi-National Commission (BNC) met to explore the renewable energy and energy efficiency opportunities for Nigeria.

Ambassador to the US, Prof. Adebowale Adefuye, confirmed the meeting to NAN on Friday. He said that the high-level meeting was scheduled to discuss issues of mutual concern between both countries within the framework of the BNC agreement.

NAN also reports that the commission is a collaborative forum to build partnerships for tangible and measurable progress on issues critical to the two countries.

The working group on good governance, transparency and integrity had met in May in Abuja, while the energy and investment group met in Washington.

Both countries plan to meet in September in Washington to inaugurate the Niger Delta and Regional Security Cooperation working group of the commission.

While in the US, Ajumogobia would also attend a forum organised by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) to discuss US – Nigeria relations.
