  • Four days into official visit, Tillerson falls sick in Kenya, cancels engagements

A Press Advisory from the U.S. Embassy said Tillerson would hold talks with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.

"Many, many important positive steps have been taken by the government of Chad to strengthen the control over its own passports, to strengthen the information-sharing", Tillerson said.

US words and deeds are colliding as Tillerson travels across Africa.

The United States has yet to hear back from North Korea about its proposal for a summit, which President Donald Trump accepted last week, Washington's top diplomat said Monday.

Chad a year ago was stunned to find itself on one of six mainly-Muslim countries whose countries are affected by President Donald Trump's travel ban.

"So, the United States is ready to engage and coordinate efforts as well". But, he added, "We have to wait for the final report".

Quebec's aluminum industry gets temporary relief from Trump's tariffs
Zypries told Deutschlandfunk radio that so far no tariffs had been imposed and it was too early to talk about a looming trade war. Many Republicans have spoken against the plan, and Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn resigned Tuesday over policy differences.


Tillerson's week-long, five-country visit to Africa has come amid other urgent foreign policy developments, including Thursday's announcement that U.S. President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

He affirmed that Boko Haram remains a threat not just to Nigeria but the subregion.

He arrived from Chad, where he also promised support for a state fighting jihadism. The country is known to have one of the strongest and most effective militaries in Africa and has been a driving force behind the new G5 Sahel unit.

The May summit would be the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.

Asked what the U.S can do to rescue the girls, Tillerson said: "First, we respect the responsibilities of the government of Nigeria and the territorial integrity of Nigeria".

The Chad issue has emerged as a sore point between the State Department and Homeland Security, exposing fault lines within Trump's administration.
