Excerpt from the United States Department of State daily press briefing:
QUESTION: One follow-up on Uganda. I know Wendy Sherman addressed this in Nairobi today, saying the Ugandan threat to withdraw troops from AMISOM if the UN report on Congo isn't altered. Ms. Sherman said that her understanding from Museveni was that he'd planned to keep his troops there. I'm just wondering if you've had any explicit assurances from him.
It sounded to me as though her conversation - her assessment of his willingness to keep troops there was based on stuff - on a conversation they had before they made the threat. So I'm just wondering if you've had any direct contact with Kampala following this threat made on Friday, and if they've given you any assurances that they do indeed plan to keep their troops there.
MS. NULAND: My understanding was that Under Secretary Sherman had seen him since the press reporting - yeah, that she had seen him on Saturday, that she had raised these issues with him. So if she is being as affirmative as she is, I think she's the last senior American to speak with him, the most recent senior American to speak with him.
