Biden assures Africa for partnership in solidarity, support and mutual respect

President Joe Biden has assured African leaders “The United States stands ready now to be your partner in solidarity, support and mutual respect”.

The United States president said in a video address, his first speech to an international forum as U.S. president while delivering a message to African leaders meeting virtually this weekend at the African Union Summit 2021, hosted from Addis Ababa.

In his remarks, Biden outlined what he called a shared vision of a better future with growing trade and investment that advances peace and security.

“A future committed to investing in our democratic institutions and promoting the human rights of all people, women and girls, LGBTQ individuals, people with disabilities, and people of every ethnic background, religion and heritage,” Biden said.

Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat welcomed the message and said the African Union looks forward to “resetting the strategic AU-USA partnership.”
