U.S., China complementary in Africa: envoy
HARARE, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- The United States does not view China as its threat in Africa, but sees the work being done by the two countries on the continent as complementary, U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe Bruce Wharton said on Monday.
Speaking at a joint press conference with visiting U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Africa Affairs Shannon Smith, Wharton said the U.S. was not in any way competing with the Chinese in Africa.
