Bilateral talks held between Nigeria and Guinea

Bilateral talks have been held between Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and President Alpha Conde of Guinea during the ongoing ninth G8 summit being held in Istanbul, Turkey.

President Buhari said leaders should learn from history to effectively tackle conflicts, violent extremism, and proliferation of small arms whilst encouraging  African leaders to speak ‘with one voice’, independent of foreign influence, to achieve economic integration and development.

He also assured President Conde, who is the current Chairman of the African Union(AU), that Nigeria will continue to strengthen its engagement with all AU member states.

President Conde on his own acknowledged Nigeria’s leadership on the continent, particularly Buhari’s strong voice on African issues on the international stage and stressed the need for Guinea and Nigeria to accelerate economic cooperation, particularly in the natural resources sector.
