US Secretary, Tillerson, meets Buhari in Abuja

Secy Tillerson Visits Sites In Kenya As Tour Of Africa Continues

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Chad Monday to show US support for a key counter-terrorism ally furious over its inclusion on the Trump administration's visa-ban list.

Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma, US ambassador Robert Godec and other government officials accompanied Tillerson to the JKIA.

Tillerson's first official Africa visit includes Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, Chad and Nigeria.

In September, The Trump White House added Chad - along with North Korea and Venezuela - to a list of countries whose citizens are restricted from travelling to the United States - drawing protests from Chad and others including France which works closely with the Chadian military.

On the outskirts of a sprawling reserve of Kenyan grasslands where endangered animals roam wild, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson lavished praise on an American-funded forensics lab that tracks down elephant-poachers for prosecution, and urged aggressive action in Africa on conservation.

Juma and Tillerson agreed to establish bi-annual consultations that would review the state of Kenya-US relations and discuss and sign agreements to guide trade and investment.

The US secretary of state will leave the country after the press conference.

Tillerson has been in the country for the last three-days after jetting in on Friday. The stations had planned to live-stream the oath. The Supreme Court in April is slated to take up the latest version.

Tillerson who visited the capital N'Djamena on Monday described Chad as an "important partner" in counter terrorism.

He arrived from Chad, where he also promised support for a state fighting jihadism.

The five-nation trip to Africa has coincided with two major foreign-policy events: President Donald Trump's decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports, and the dramatic announcement on Thursday, March 8, that the president would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in May.
