President Goodluck Jonathan has met with his United States counterpart, Barack Obama.
The meeting which took place in New York, ahead of the opening of the 68th session of the United Nations was centred on the need to tackle international terrorism.
President Jonathan who expressed appreciation over the U.S. support asked the international community to unite and deploy all resources to fight terrorism, with a recent attack on Kenya by the Somalian group Al-Shabaab.
“You experienced such recently and we still experience it in Nigeria, so I feel the pains of President Kenyatta, to get that level of attack, and that is why we maintain that “terror anywhere is terror on all of us”
“So we call on the global leaders to come together and fight terror”

President Barack Obama while welcoming President Jonathan described Nigeria as a critical partner of the United States in Africa.
“I’ve had the opportunity to speak with President Kenyatta directly, about the terrible tragedy that has happened in Nairobi
“We are providing all the cooperating we can, as we deal with the situation that has captivated the world, I want to express personally my condolences to Kenyans and President Kenyatta who lost two family members to the attack.
“But to the Kenyan people, we stand with them against this terrible outrage that occurred, we will provide them with whatever large enforcement support that is necessary and we are confident that Kenya, which has been a pillar of stability in Eastern Africa, will rebuild”.
After his meeting with President Obama, President Jonathan flanked by the Finance Minister Okonjo-Iweala, Petroleum Minister Diezani Allission Madueke and Nigeria’s Stock Exchange Commission D.G, Arunma Oteh, proceeded to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) where he rang the closing bell for trading.
