President Zuma talks to the President of Nigeria

President Jacob Zuma has had telephonic discussions with President Goodluck Jonathan of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on recent developments.

The two Presidents reaffirmed the warm and cordial relations between South Africa and Nigeria and pledged that two countries will continue to work together for the good of their peoples and the continent as a whole.

President Jonathan expressed his support for the efforts of South Africa to arrest the attacks on foreign nationals and to ensure the safety and security of all citizens, including foreign nationals and those from the African continent, in particular who bore the brunt of the attacks earlier this month.

President Zuma will attend the inauguration of the President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, General Muhammadu Buhari, next month.
