President Biden intends to host the US-Africa Leaders Summit to drive the kind of high-level diplomacy and engagement that can transform relationships and make effective cooperation possible, Blinken said. But he did not give a date for the summit.

Blinken is on his first visit to sub-Saharan Africa as US Secretary of State. His trip began in Nairobi, Kenya, and will end in Dakar, Senegal.
