CHAPTER ONE
1.1  INTRODUCTION
In the contemporary settings, diplomatic relations among nations have been the major defining element of international relations. Therefore, nations states, no matter their degree and level of development and size depends on one another for survival. This is in view of the fact that in international politics, nations are in Island unto themselves or self sufficient. This need for economic, political cultural and other aspects of relationships becomes necessary and inevitable among nations irrespective of their size and geographical locations.

Equally nations, weak or strong, small or big aspires to be recognized in negotiation with other countries in order to protect their national interests. Hence the need for international, cooperation and mutual dependency among nations remain inevitable.

Nigeria and the Republic of Niger were colonial creation born out of series of negations, treaties and conquests by Britain and France, in the first decade of the 20th Century. The two countries share common land boundaries which stretches to over thousand kilometers. Both countries got their political independence from their respective colonial masters in 1960 and have since exchange diplomatic missions and entered into various bilateral relations which border on trade, industry, education, culture and politics with a view to furthering their respective national interests which are central to international relations.

It is an underlying fact that in the pursuit of international politics, there is no permanent interest. Whether interests being pursued by two countries are complementary, or the relationship is on interdependent basis, then the relation is likely to be good and enduring. But where interests clash, the relationship is likely to suffer because of geographical contiguity as well as similar historical background of both Nigeria and the Republic of Niger, it is expected that there are both tendencies for good relations between the two countries as well as strains depending on the manner in which the leaders of two countries conduct their respective foreign relations.

This study therefore, examines the nature bilateral relations and economy cooperation between Nigeria and Niger Republic with the view to investigating the basis of this relations and cooperation and more precisely for explaining the prospects for broadening ties and cooperation between the two nations for general wellbeing of their citizens.
