I presented remarks today at the National Defense University in Washington on the involvement of non-western states in Africa. My analysis looked at China, India, Brazil, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Vietnam.
The bottom line is that the playing field in Africa has become much more crowded. A growing number of non-western nations are intensifying their contact with African countries. As the United States and the West generally pursue their own interests on the continent, they will have to take account of this significant new development. You can read the text of the remarks here.
