Nigeria would welcome United Nations representatives as intermediaries in any talks with Boko Haram on the release of about 200 schoolgirls kidnapped from the northeastern village of Chibok in 2014, President Muhammadu Buhari said on Thursday.

Nigeria would "welcome intermediaries such as U.N. outfits, to step in", Buhari told United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at a meeting on sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly, in New York, a statement issued by the president’s office said.
