The United State of America mission in Nigeria is committed to promoting dialogue and mutual understanding especially among Nigerian youths.
US Ambassador, Mr Terence McCulley made the pledge in Abuja while breaking fast with Muslims at the Al-Habibiyyah Islamic Society, Abuja.
McCulley was represented by the Embassy's Charge de Affairs and acting Ambassador, James McAnulty.
His visit is coming on the heels of similar visit by the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Dr John Onaiyekan on Tuesday.
"The US Mission remains engaged with Nigerian Muslims and other communities to promote dialogue and mutual understanding, especially among Nigeria's youth. So we come to join you in breaking your fast with a sentiment that may best be summed up by Hausa Proverb, which says "Zumunta a k'afa take" which means "Good relationship depends on personal interaction". We hope that by being here today we have kept up the good relationship we have with the Muslim community of Abuja and Nigeria as a whole.
"This month, President Obama will continue a long tradition by hosting an inter-faith Iftar at the White House. The opportunity for us to join with our Muslim brothers and sisters in the celebration of their faith reminds us that we are all part of a larger community dedicated to making Nigeria a better place. This desire for a life of peace and prosperity is not limited to your community, we share this desire with communities all over the world," he said.
