United State President Barrack Obama has invited President Goodluck Jonathan to a private meeting scheduled to hold in New York next month.
This was disclosed by the United States Under Secretary for Political Affairs, Ms Wendy Sherman.
Speaking journalists in the United States, Sherman stated that she delivered a letter from Obama to President Jonathan who accepted it adding that the US is looking forward to improving relations further on the basis of the letter.
She also added that Nigeria is a very important country, not only in Africa but in the world, which cannot be ignored.
Sherman who is leading a delegation to the US-Nigeria Bi-National Commission meeting said the commission serves as an invaluable tool for the two countries to work together towards a stronger relationship between them.
She added that the commission would support Nigeria as it moves forward to meet all the challenges before it which include security, governance, education and agriculture.
Reacting to a question on whether the failure of Barack Obama to visit Nigeria during his last trip to Africa was a snub on Nigeria, the American official parried the question while emphasizing the importance of Nigerian/USA relations.
“Our presidents will likely meet soon. I will leave that announcement to the President of the United States and the President of Nigeria.”
