Ebola, trade and security to be discussed as DRC’s Tshisekedi visits US

April 4, 2019

Democratic Republic of Congo’s president Felix Tshisekedi was on Tuesday welcomed to the United States by the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, kicking off what should be an exploration of ways to develop a strong partnership between the two countries.

The United States has imposed sanctions on Congolese officials it accuses of manipulating the election that brought Tshisekedi into power.

Last week, the spokesperson of the State Department Robert Palladino, said Pompeo and other senior cabinet officials in the Trump administration, would also discuss efforts to contain the Ebola outbreak in the violence-plagued eastern region of DRC.
