Abuja, May 8 - China and Britain have offered to deploy their advanced tracking technologies to support Nigeria's security agencies engaged in the search and rescue operation of abducted schoolgirls, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

China has offered to assist in the effort to rescue the abducted girls, Xinhua quoted Reuben Abati, the special adviser to the Nigerian president on media and publicity, as saying in Abuja.

In talks with President Jonathan earlier today, Premier Li Keqiang promised that his country will make any useful information acquired by its satellites and intelligence services available to Nigeria's security agencies, he said.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is on an official visit to Nigeria. Premier Li Keqiang assured the president that China will support Nigeria's fight against terrorism in every possible way, including the training of military personnel for anti-insurgency operations, Abati added.

Abati spoke on the efforts by the government to locate and rescue the girls abducted from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok of northeast Borno state.

He also said that upon request by President Goodluck Jonathan, British Prime Minister David Cameron has assured to deploy his country's intelligence gathering resources in support of the search and rescue operations.

He said the Nigerian leader spoke with the British Prime Minister on phone after meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.
