Tehran, Iran, May 25
By Milad Fashtami - Trend:
Iran is ready to supply Nigeria with its experience in fighting terrorism to secure the release of over 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants.
Hossein Amir Abdollahian told Iran's Press TV that Tehran condemns the abduction of schoolgirls by terrorist groups in Nigeria.
"Given our experience in combating terrorism in our country, we are ready to supply the Nigerian officials with necessary consultation in this regard," Iran's deputy foreign minister explained.
"We share security concerns with Africa," he said.
"Nigeria, itself, has already taken serious measures to tackle the crisis," he added.
Back in April, Boko Haram Takfiri militants kidnapped more than 200 girls from a school in northeastern Nigeria.
