Obama says not threatened by China focus on Africa
The Associated Press
Obama says he's touring three African nations this week because the United States needs to increase its engagement with a continent that's showing promise and possibility.
He says such interaction is good for the U.S. regardless of what other countries do.
But he cautions that Africa must be wary of outside investment and always ask how it will benefit when other countries come seeking its natural resources or to make other investments.
Obama spoke Saturday during a news conference in South Africa with President Jacob Zuma.
