In her speech Mrs Sherman said “This trip was about deepening partnerships – and we truly see these relationships as partnerships. It was about consultation and open dialogue to identify areas of common ground where we can solve problems together, as well as discuss areas where we may not always agree, since no two nations have perfectly identical interests all of the time.

Mrs Sherman concluded “the most important thing about all of my meetings in South Africa, in Angola, and in Gabon: this is a two-way dialogue. This is not anybody coming to tell each other what each other must do. This is trying to solve issues and problems together, bring all of our expertise and all of our resources to bear on problems that affect all of us. This is what true partnership is about”.
