US Secretary of State Tillerson to jet in on Friday

"The United States was concerned that some Chinese loans were pushing countries back into heavy debt not long after they received debt relief from global financial institutions", he said.

Tillerson, while giving updates on his trip to Africa within the week, said the United States had perceived the issues arising in Nigeria and wants to show concern.

He was due to visit the African Union where many officials are still smarting from U.S. President Donald Trump's reported dismissal of member states as "shithole" countries in January.

"But the issue that comes in, it's not only a security issue - and it is a bad security challenge - but it's also political issue and really building those institutions and political dialogue between north and south, and also with the region".

Tillerson's one-week, five-nation trip that begins late Tuesday will focus on counterterrorism, promoting peace, good governance and trade and investment.

Anger spread across South Kashmir as thousands shouted slogans and joined the last rites of those killed. Also the three OGWs/ accomplices in the auto who were accompanying the terrorist were found to be dead.

If the administration wants to reduce instability and poverty in Africa, it should also rethink its refusal to fund efforts to mitigate climate change, which hits Africa's mostly rain-irrigated agriculture particularly hard. He said the USA was committed to helping, but that prosperity and basic stability would be impossible until the security situation is brought under control.

"As we look ahead, this administration seeks to deepen our partnership with Africa, with an aim of making African countries more resilient and more self-sufficient".

The amount was part of the $533m aid the U.S.is handing out to the country alongside the people of Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan and countries in the Lake Chad region.

"How do we advance political and economic reform that will help in the transition process?"

"Africa is a pace-setter for the future; the U.S. wants to play a helpful, supportive role in its partnership with the nations on the continent".

Houston Rockets vs. Boston Celtics
Ball made three shots from beyond the arc in the final three minutes to give the Lakers their fifth straight victory. Houston's win streak is its longest since the Hakeem Olajuwan-led team won the first 15 games of the 1993-94 season.

"And so those are some of the issues and challenges that we'll be working on - political institutions, political dialogue, reconciliation, supporting community-based development, helping growth, education".

"For context, by the year 2050, Nigeria will have a population larger than the United States and an economy larger than Australia's".

"The debt of some African countries is the result of long-term accumulation instead of a recent appearance". Last year, US exports to Africa were lower than they had been since 2006.

"Rather, it was a visit to Nasarawa, a neighbouring state to Benue that was important to him".
