Briefing State House correspondents after the meeting, Jonathan said the agreements, meant to deepen ties between both countries, covered agriculture, industrial cooperation and cultural exchanges.
According to him, other areas in the agreement include trade and commerce, narcotics, anti-terrorism and security, poverty reduction and human capacity development.
Describing the current trade volume between both countries as extremely low, Jonathan said that Nigeria and Pakistan were committed to doubling it in the next years.
Jonathan described Hussain’s visit as “historic and extremely important to Nigeria” being the first ever state visit by any Pakistan president.
He said that the strong support given to Nigeria by Pakistan during the Nigeria’s quest for non-permanent seat in the UN Security Council attested to the cordial relations between both countries.
Jonathan assured Hussain that ‘‘Nigeria will reciprocate when it gets to the time of Pakistan.’’
He noted that both countries had high populations and huge natural resources that could be translated into wealth for their citizens if they work together.
“We have just had bilateral discussions which examined issues of common interest. This is quiet significant because just like Nigeria is suffering from terror attacks, Pakistan is also experiencing terror attacks.
“It participated actively in the struggle to make sure that African countries gained independence.
“At all international level Pakistan and Nigeria relate very well,” Jonathan said.
Jonathan further said that he would soon pay a state visit to Pakistan in furtherance of the quest to deepen relations between both countries.
“Our foreign, defence and trade ministers are also encouraged to be part of such visits. Pakistan has developed in terms of defence and we are also developing.
In his remarks Hussain underscored the need to institutionalise areas of partnership between Nigeria and Pakistan.
