US Supports Permanency for Africa in World Security Council.

The United States government has said it is fully in support of Nigeria and the rest of Africa becoming permanent members of the world security council.


Speaking at the ongoing Foreign Press Centre press reporting tour for selected African journalists in Washington DC, special assistant to the US President, Judd Devermont said this is key so that Nigeria and Africa have a voice in important security matters as well as being a player in trade and not just aid alone.


Speaking on their aid efforts in Africa, he said developmental assistance is always needed in various ways including food aid and healthcare deliverables.


Defending the United States continued probe into China’s relations with Africa, he said it would be disingenuous if they didn’t, adding that the US has been doing it before some of their rivals became democracies.
