India, Nigeria reaffirm stance on UN Security Council, boost ties

NIGERIA, India and Nigeria on Monday reaffirmed their stance in favour of UN Security Council reform and signed up to a slew of cooperation agreements on day two of a state visit to Nigeria by Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, a joint statement said.

The two countries reaffirmed "their understanding that no reform of the United Nations would be complete without reform of the UN Security Council." "Nigeria reaffirmed its support for India's permanent membership on an expanded UN Security Council.

India will respect Africa's consensus with respect to new permanent membership from Africa," the statement said.

Singh and Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua also agreed to put in place over the next six months a slew of agreements on promoting and protecting investments, avoiding double taxation, air services, mutual legal assistance and science and technology.
