No Meeting Between Lavrov, Tillerson Took Place in Ethiopia

Faki and Tillerson hold a news conference at African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa Ethiopia

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson holds a news conference with African Union (AU) Commission Chairman Moussa Faki, of Chad, after their meeting at African Union headquarters, Thursday, March 8, 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Mr Tillerson praised President Kenyatta for reaching out to NASA leader Raila Odinga, saying that was a major milestone in consolidating national unity. The stations had planned to live-stream the oath. "We know where our interests' lies and it is our full awareness I think that is most important", he said. "A free and independent media is essential for safeguarding democracy and giving all Kenyans confidence in their government".

She said that only "three of more than 10s" of TV stations were temporarily shut down.

President Kenyatta said the solid friendship and cooperation that continues to deepen, only serves to encourage Kenya to strengthen its resolve to work together with the U.S. towards an even brighter future. It is ridiculous. Without funds, how can you develop a country? The model Chinese follow they do not bring significant job creation locally.

"All the credit" for the meeting went to the Kenyan political leaders, Tillerson said, in response to a question as to whether the US had a role in organising it.

Faki assured reporters that the incident was over and his brief discussion with Tillerson on Thursday morning had focused on areas of cooperation, such as the possibility of the US providing financial support for an African Union peacekeeping mission in Somalia.

Sexton then darted down the court and nailed a quick jumper to give the Crimson Tide a one point lead with 17 seconds remaining. Although it carries momentum into the quarterfinals, Georgia could suffer from fatigue by playing its third game in three days.

"This August, we will remember the hundreds of lives lost 20 years ago in the USA embassy attacks in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam - where hundreds of lives ended", Tillerson said. The bombings killed 224 people.

Algeria's Smail Chergui, the African Union Commissioner for Peace and Security, also took place in the meeting with Rex Tillerson.

Tillerson said fighting corruption was another area of common cause between Africa and USA adding, we're very pleased to see that the African Union has named 2018 as the year for winning the fight against corruption. Trump later sent a letter on January 25 to Faki and other African leaders underscoring the U.S.'s commitment to the continent.

Typically, reporters with Tillerson and from the host country get to ask the same number of questions.

The diplomat met Ethiopia's Foreign Minister Workneh Gebeyehu as well as Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn who resigned earlier this month amid a political crisis in Africa's fastest growing economy.

US officials did not intervene to allow the USA journalists to ask questions, according to a Reuters witness.
