Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin urged the United States to closely monitor the actions of Russia and China, "destabilizing" Africa

The United States is very concerned about the growing activity of Russia and China on the African continent. The Pentagon urged to closely monitor these two countries and be ready to take action to limit their influence. This was stated by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.


Washington is hosting the US-Africa summit, which is attended by the heads of state and government of 49 countries of the African continent, as well as members of the African Union. The United States immediately declared that America is "a friend, comrade and brother" for Africa, but it is not necessary to be friends with Russia and China, this can lead to big problems.

Speaking at the summit, Pentagon chief Austin bluntly stated that the United States was concerned about the growing influence of Moscow and Beijing on African countries, and warned that this could lead to destabilization of the situation on the continent. Therefore, the United States will increase its presence in Africa, so that in which case, this very "destabilization" will be stopped at the very root.

As for Russia and China, we see that the PRC is expanding its presence on the continent every day. As they do so, they increase their economic influence. It's a concern that they don't always provide transparency about what they do. And this causes problems that will gradually lead to destabilization, if it is not already happening.

- said the US Secretary of Defense.

Particular care must be taken to ensure that Russia and China do not act together, Lloyd Austin added. If Moscow and Beijing coordinate their actions, this will definitely lead to "destabilization". True, there is another option in which this very "destabilization" can be avoided, it is not to stick your nose in the USA wherever they are not asked. Then comes peace and tranquility. However, this option does not suit Washington.

        well, if someone is not worth something (there are no opportunities and forces), then it remains only to FOLLOW (that is, to watch and salivate and complain to everyone around, which is what they are doing now).

    It is not in vain that the monument stands in the Central African Republic. In the light of recent successes, it is already clear that with such experience and the expansion of the staff that they received in Artyomovsk, the musician will soon be taken out by the imperialists from all over Africa.

    "Don't stick your nose in the US wherever they don't ask. Then peace and tranquility will come."
    This is what we need to SHOUT at all international meetings, press conferences. And do it all the time, literally go over the ears, as they do, shouting about "Russian aggression." Why were they able to assemble a coalition (ubl..v), but we cannot assemble a righteous one. Why, for the victory of evil, the most valuable Russian blood must be shed, our gene pool must be beaten out. What kind of development can we talk about if there is no one to do it.

    HA, HA! It looks like he has African roots.
    Here are just such "root" ones there are no longer very much expected! At least not everywhere.

    The United States will not be the United States if it does not force representatives of African countries to sign the final document of the US-Africa summit that suits only the United States. 1 point of the document: Condemnation of Russia's NVO in Ukraine. Let's look again who caved in. After the UN vote on the same issue, it will be interesting .

    The United States is very concerned about the growing activity of Russia and China on the African continent.
    It is easier to list what and by whom the states are not concerned - their activities in the world.
    America is "a friend, comrade and brother" for Africa, but there is no need to be friends with Russia and China, this can lead to big problems.
    Even a comment is not required. Having such skin color to consider Africans half-wits should be ashamed of Mr. Lloyd Austin.

      "Austin is an American African."
      No.
      He is just a black man.

        He is not just a black man laughing He is a descendant of African slaves who were taken out of Africa by American "friends" on a "tour" in shackles. This "friendship" to Africans still hiccups. yes

    Worried?
    It is clear that they have always considered Africa their garden and robbed it.
    And here come those who work with Africans on equal terms.
    Vaughn Bidon wants to gather heads of forty heads of African states in order to straighten their brains.
    Those days have just passed.

      Americans believe that China and Russia can destabilize Africa and improve at least somehow its life, and they carry a stable impoverished hungry existence and democracy.

    Well, let America not climb where they don’t want to see it - that’s where there will be no destabilization.

          So on our banknotes, in general, only the cities of Russia, and not all banknotes bear the contours of a state called the United States.

            On the one hand, it's good. But some cities may take offense.
            Do we have few great people in history?
            Pushkin, Tolstoy, Lomonosov, Dostoevsky, Lermontov, Zhukovsky, Mendeleev, Chekhov, and many other names that are known to the whole world, but our schoolchildren do not know them.
            The military and rulers specifically did not name.
