In a preview, the US news website, Axios, reported that US President Joe Biden is planning a trip to several African countries next year, given that none of the top US foreign policymakers has visited Africa during the first nine months of the Biden administration.
It’s a solid announcement to be made at the US-Africa Leaders’ Summit in front of representatives of 49 African countries to highlight the US willingness to seriously deepen ties with the African continent beyond security issues and humanitarian crises, Axios says.
Another signal of this new page in US-African relations is that Biden will underline his support for an African seat on the UN Security Council at the summit and announce that he wants the African Union to join the G20 as a permanent member.
Similarly, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said yesterday that Biden would announce $55 billion worth of initiatives over the next three years in favour of African countries during the summit.
