Inviting Tanzania's new president to the White House, opening a US embassy in Somalia and resetting relations with Sudan are among the Africa initiatives President Barack Obama should take in his final year in office, a retired State Department official suggested on January 3, 2014.
Johnnie Carson, former assistant secretary of state for Africa, also advised the American president to dispatch John Kerry, the top US diplomat, on "an extended visit" to Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Congo-Brazzaville.
