Blinken On Three-Nation Africa Tour

Must Read

The State Department stated that Blinken spent an hour-and-a-half alone with Kenyatta in a one-on-one session that has been scheduled for only 10 minutes although the exact topics of the discussion and any potential developments were not immediately disclosed.
