The European Union (EU) says the ongoing Regional Security Summit in Abuja will build on the successes already recorded against Boko Haram insurgents.

This is contained in a statement from the Office of the EU Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS on Saturday in Abuja.

“The Regional Summit builds on the work of the first Summit focused on the security issues hosted by France, two years ago, which had helped in degrading Boko Haram insurgency.”

The statement said the EU remained committed to building capacities of the African partner countries in support of security and development.

According to it, building capacities of the African partner countries in support of security and development will enable them to prevent and manage crisis by themselves.

It said that the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President, Federica Mogherini, was attending the Summit.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that ongoing summit brings together leaders from across the world to address the international community’s intent to support Nigeria in its fight against Boko Haram.
