African Union : Rex Tillerson received by Moussa Faki Mahamat and Smail Chergui

Feeling unwell Tillerson cancels Nairobi programme

Tillerson arrived in Ethiopia, Africa's second most populous nation, on Wednesday and visited the African Union headquarters on Thursday.

Tillerson said Chinese investment often leads African countries to default on debts, and he warned that the Chinese also often neglect to train local populations, which can enable Africans to be involved in charting their own future.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, visiting Zimbabwe on Thursday, told reporters it was inappropriate for Tillerson to criticize China's relationship with African countries.

"We insist that African problems need African solutions, and the worldwide community should respect the Africans' choice of resolving a conflict, and support them morally, politically and financially in training staff for peacekeeping operations, which Russian Federation has been actively doing", he said. During the transition, mentions of the continent seemed largely in the context of cutting some signature USA programs.

President Kenyatta also informed the US Secretary of State of Kenya's recently concluded hotly contested and protracted election, saying "The values and tenets that we both share and cherish, including; democratic governance, constitutionalism, rule of law, and human rights, were tested".

Tillerson said health security advances national security, economic development, and political stability.

This trip will jumpstart the dialogue that will inform U.S. -Africa policies going forward.

"There is ample opportunity on the continent for economic growth, for greater prosperity, and for responding to global challenges through mutually respectful partnerships".

Tillerson is showing up with few concrete goals or new actions to announce for Africa, making his mission even harder.

"President Donald Trump, we've heard, has called Africa a 's--hole, ' and Africans".

Tillerson's Africa visit began in Ethiopia, then on the way to Nairobi, he made a stop in Djibouti.

"African countries and people know the best and are in the best position to say whether the China-Africa cooperation is good or not", he concluded.

"We have agreed to work for the strengthening of the trade and commercial relations between Africa and the USA, including the post-AGOA - the African Growth and Opportunity Act", he said.

Algeria's Smail Chergui, the African Union Commissioner for Peace and Security, also took place in the meeting with Rex Tillerson. Some African governments have tended to bristle at Washington's approach, according to the FT. When opposition leader Raila Odinga held a mock inauguration, the government shut down TV stations and arrested opposition politicians, but the US has largely voiced support for Kenyatta. The Trump administration has said that Pyongyang earns hard currency from arms deals with African government and the trafficking of wildlife parts from Africa.

US officials did not intervene to allow the USA journalists to ask questions, according to a Reuters witness. But word emerged Tuesday that his administration would start approving elephant trophy importing on a “case-by-case” basis.
