WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano met Sunday in Nigeria with top officials from Africa and the International Civil Aviation Organization to discuss ways to improve aviation security worldwide, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday.

“The attempted terrorist attack on Dec. 25 demonstrated that international terrorist threats must be countered with a coordinated, global response through enhanced security standards, increased information sharing and stronger screening measures,” Napolitano said in a statement. “My meetings with our African partners underscore our commitment to working together to strengthen global aviation security measures and better protect the traveling public.”

In Abuja, Nigeria, Napolitano addressed more than 30 African ministers and representatives and stressed the importance of working together to prevent terrorists from boarding commercial flights, the agency said.

The agency also said Napolitano “applauded the measures taken since Dec. 25 to strengthen aviation security in Africa—including Nigeria’s installation of advanced imaging technology units at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, the nation’s busiest airport.”
