With Washington consumed with international diplomacy to halt Russia’s assault on its neighbour, the Joe Biden administration repeatedly pressed AU Chairman Moussa Faki on the issue during his meetings with US officials including US national security adviser Jake Sullivan, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and US Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Samantha Power. Faki is in town for the 8th high-level dialogue between the African Union Commission and the United States, an annual affair launched in 2013 that last convened in November 2019.
“I was pleased to open the 8th AUC-US #HighLevelDialogue in Washington DC with @SecBlinken today to discuss our strategic partnership in Peace&Sec,Climate Change & Trade,” Faki tweeted Friday 11 March. “We also signed an MoU on @AfricaCDC to advance our already strong collaboration in global health security.”
