High-Level U.S. National Security Delegation Pitched Tshisekedi a “Different Development Model” Than China’s

TWEET TRANSLATION: President Tshisekedi received an official American delegation on Friday led by Mr. Daleep Singh, deputy national security advisor and Dana Banks, National Security Council Senior Director for Africa.

A high-level delegation from the United States met with Democratic Republic of Congo President Félix Tshisekedi in Kinshasa on Friday, in what appears to be an effort to try and loosen China’s increasingly tight grip on the Congolese mining sector.

The U.S. group was led by Deputy National Security Advisor Daleep Singh and the National Security Council’s Africa lead, Dana Banks. Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Kinshasa, Mike Hammer, also attended the meetings.
