Clinton holds strategic talks in South Africa
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is meeting top South African officials in talks focused on HIV/AIDS, trade and the response to events in global hotspots.
In South Africa's capital, Pretoria, Clinton met today with the country's foreign minister in the second cabinet-level strategic dialogue between the two nations. South Africa is a member of the U.N. Security Council and the U.S. wants its support in dealing with the worsening crisis in Syria.
Clinton is in South Africa at the midpoint of an 11-day tour that has already taken her to Senegal, Uganda, South Sudan, Kenya and Malawi. After a stop in Cape Town, she will travel on to Nigeria, Ghana and Benin before moving on to Turkey, where she will have meetings to discuss Syria.
