U.S. President Barack Obama will host Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the White House on July 20 to discuss fighting the Boko Haram militant group, among other issues, the White House National Security Council said on Thursday.

During the visit, advancing economic and political reforms in Nigeria will also be discussed between senior government advisers from both countries, the White House said.

Obama and other leaders including Buhari met at the G7 summit earlier this month to discuss global issues including efforts at combating militants.

U.S. officials have also said the United States could send more advisers to Nigeria to train its military, and it could help boost the nation’s economy through more investment in its oil and gas sector.

“The visit will underscore our commitment to strengthening and expanding our partnership with Nigeria’s new government and support for the Nigerian people,” the White House said in a statement on Twitter.
