BERLIN, 5 June 2014 – PRNewswire Africa – Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier issued the following statement in light of the recent brutal attacks in Nigeria: Zusatzinformationen. We condemn the acts of terror committed by Boko Haram in Nigeria in the strongest possible terms. I have conveyed my deepest sympathy to my Nigerian colleague and those who have lost loved ones, as well as to the families of the abducted girls.
We want to work together to combat the Islamist terrorism which is taking such a terrible toll on Nigeria. I have expressly reassured Nigeria’s Foreign Minister that Germany will support his country in the fight against Boko Haram.
We plan to intensify our cooperation in the police and security sectors. We plan to set up projects to support the families affected and the kidnapped girls’ villages. We also want to help with conflict prevention.
We will discuss the concrete details when the German-Nigerian Binational Commission meets in a few weeks.
