Dmitry Medvedev congratulated President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan on assuming his post

May 7, 2010

The congratulatory telegram reads, in part:

“For nearly half a century, relations between Russia and Nigeria have traditionally been built on a foundation of trust, close friendship, and respect. They have always been based on a mutual desire to expand cooperation in addressing pressing international problems and strengthening trade and economic ties, which certainly have significant potential.

I am confident that under your leadership Nigeria’s cooperation with Russia will further develop for the good of both our peoples and in the interest of stability and prosperity in Africa.”
