The United States and China yielded to Russia in the struggle for control of Africa. This is stated in an article by the American publication Foreign Affairs.
According to analysts, now China and Russia are building up their military forces in Africa, and the United States has begun to gradually reduce it. Experts cited 2014 as an example, when Russia drew up and signed about 19 agreements with the countries of this continent. The United States, on the other hand, relies on its own ambassadors in contact and interaction with African countries.
“The increased activity of Russia and China is already turning Africa into an arena of intense rivalry with the United States,” the article says. The authors added that if everything continues like this, then the American side will also have to strengthen its position and influence on the continent.
The US is going to confront transnational threats in Africa through a regional strategy, analysts concluded.
