Nigeria's president praised South Africa yesterday for ending attacks on African migrants.
He made no mention of his government's suggestion it would seek compensation for losses suffered by Nigerians.
The comments from President Umaru Yar'Adua, during a visit to Cape Town, contrasted with Nigeria's earlier vocalcondemnation of the attacks, which have created friction between South Africa and the rest of the continent.
Nigerians were among those targeted by mobs who went on the rampage last month in shantytowns in Johannesburg and elsewhere.
Dozens were killed and tens of thousands, mostly Zimbabweans and Mozambicans, forced to flee their homes.
No Nigerians were killed in the violence.
The bloodshed ended shortly after South African President Thabo Mbeki sent the army into restive areas.
"The government brought out the troops to ensure that immigrants of African origin are protected," Yar'Adua said during the official visit.
"The government and the president has made a determined and committed effort to control and put a stop to the situation, and this has set an example to other nations because this kind of situation can arise anywhere." - Reuters
