Issa Abdelmajid Mansour, Minister Plenipotentiary for African Affairs for Libya's parliament-appointed government, discussed issues relating to security, counter-terrorism and migration, with Nigerien security authorities.

Nigerien Minister of State for Interior and Public Security, Brigadier General Mohamed Toumba, received Mansour in Niamey on Tuesday.

The meeting highlighted various aspects of bilateral cooperation between Niger and Libya, with a main focus on security and migration issues.

According to Nigerien media sources, the meeting discussed in particular issues of joint cooperation to directly address the challenges posed by terrorism and continuing cross-border threats.

It was agreed to strengthen cooperation between the Nigerien and Libyan security services as a key measure to confront extremist forces.

On the issue of migration, the two ministers recognized the need to "address this complex challenge with a comprehensive approach, as common views on the management of migration flows have demonstrated the desire to develop humane solutions that respect fundamental rights."

Last week, Niger's Foreign Minister Bakary Yawo Sangaré and the Special Envoy of the President of Niger, Ghali Al-Mbou, visited Benghazi for similar discussions.
