China's President Hu Jintao holds talks in Nigeria Wednesday on the fourth leg of his five-nation tour.
Mr. Hu's visit to Nigeria comes as China seeks new sources of oil. It recently purchased a major stake in a large Nigerian offshore oil field.
President Hu traveled to Nigeria from Morocco, where he met with Moroccan Prime Minister Driss Jettou for talks on expanding trade. He also signed agreements on trade, science, culture and health care with Morocco's King Mohammed.
Mr. Hu's trip concludes with a visit to Kenya Friday. He earlier traveled to Saudi Arabia and the United States.
