China-US Cooperation in Africa

The Institute for Security Studies published on 8 March 2018 a commentary titled "US and China Inch towards Awkward Cooperation in Africa" by Peter Fabricius.

The commentary emphasizes the recent US invitation to China to meet in Washington for purposes of discussing Africa. It implies this is a significant new initiative. In fact, China-US meetings on Africa at the assistant secretary of state level have occurred every one or two years, alternating between Washington and Beijing, dating back several administrations. There is no reason to believe the upcoming meeting will be any more significant than previous sessions.
