The U.S. Assistant Secretary of State John Sullivan is visiting South Africa and Angola from March 12 to March 18, with the aim of strengthening bilateral ties with the two countries. Among issues to be discussed is bound to be a contentious issue which the U.S. and South Africa has not agreed on and that is Venezuela. South Africa voted against a resolution brought by the U.S. at the United Nations Security Council to allow for that country's opposition leader Juan Guaido to be president, pending an election and sidelining current President Nicolas Maduro. The U.S. sees Angola as the "good news" story with the stamping out of corruption by its new President João Lourenço and bilateral ties and other issues will be discussed there.
