The Iran government on Saturday announced plans to assist Nigeria and other African countries in the course of fighting against the Boko Haram sect, as their way of contribution for global peace.

Abdollohian described the severe onset of trouble caused by the Boko-Haram extremists and that of Al-Shabaab in the Somalia as similar to that of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State and other terrorist groups in the Middle East.

“Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabaab in the Horn of Africa are similar with Al-Qaeda and ISISL in parts of the Middle East using very similar methods of operations to effect havoc to the people of the two regions. Iran is therefore willing to use its experience in dealing with terror groups to assist in fighting these groups in Africa.”

The envoy said his country was willing to assist with its experiences on terrorist activities it gathered over the years in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria and other parts of the Middle East with Africa, particularly Nigeria and Somalia, as part of efforts to ensure global peace.
