This is a petition to conﬁrm an arbitral award made under an agreement to arbitrate between Nigeria, a foreign state, and a private party, PICCOL Nigeria, Ltd. The award falls under the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, Jun. 10, 1958, 21 U.S.T. 2517, 330 U.N.T.S. 38. Nigeria is a party to the Convention, and therefore Nigeria has implicitly waived its immunity from suit. The waiver and arbitration exceptions to foreign sovereign immunity, 28 U.S.C. §§ 1605(a)(1) and (6), apply. The district court had jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1330(a). The appellees agree with the appellant's statement on appellate jurisdiction.
