U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will convene leaders from across the African continent for the second U.S. – Africa Leaders Summit next year, the White House said on Friday without giving any specific date.

The White House said the summit, which is part of the Biden Administration’s commitment to revitalizing global partnerships and alliances, “will continue efforts to strengthen ties with African partners based on principles of mutual respect and shared interests and values.

“It will also serve as an opportunity to listen to and collaborate with African counterparts on key areas the United States and Africa define as critical for the future of the continent and our global community,” the White House added. It said additional details will follow.


It is not clear who will be invited and whether the summit will be held in person or virtually as the world continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.
