President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly stated that Nigeria will support efforts to bring peaceful resolution and reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula.
Disclosing this on Friday, during the opening of World Summit 2022, the President stated that, ”The Korean situation as defined by its history and geography is unique in the sense that as the only nation in the Asia-Pacific region that remains divided since the cold war era, peace on the Korean peninsula has far-reaching implications to the region, if not to the world at large.’
He noted that, ”The Nigerian Government encourages and supports every effort to promote understanding and a commitment to peace among the governments and people of both Koreas; and has for a long time, maintained relations with them at ambassadorial level.”
Buhari made it known that, “What is important is the commitment to arrive at a true and lasting peace, through the most peaceful process.”
Commenting on the situation in North-East Nigeria, the President reportedly noted that, ”We are equipping the Nigerian security forces to enable them to effectively contain the contemporary security challenges facing the Nigerian Society, in line with modern rules of engagement.’
He disclosed that, ”We are establishing army and air force universities as a platform and long-term plan for institutionalizing the practice of peacebuilding and conflict management among young Nigerians.”
He maintained that, ”We have initiated many entrepreneurial/economic projects to address youth bulge and unemployment. At the regional level, our administration has shown and will continue to provide strong support to peace initiatives and efforts in the West African sub-region.”
He also remarked that, ”We shall continue to pioneer and collaborate with all such efforts in resolving conflicts and bringing lasting peace and security to the West African Sub-Region.”
