Russia and Nigeria share similar views on global issues and are going to follow this policy in the future, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his opening remarks with Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari. reports citing TASS.

"I would like to say that Russia and Nigeria make very similar approaches to many crucial issues on the global agenda, and we hope for such cooperation in the future," he said.

"Although the trade turnover is not very big in real terms and in our opinion falls short of our potential, its growth rate is impressive. Last year it was up 93%," Putin said.

He believes that a tangible role in this respect must be played by the bilateral commission for trading and economic cooperation, as well as the Russia-Nigeria and Nigeria-Russia business councils, created in 2006-2007.
