PHOTOS: Rubio Conducts Oversight in Trip to Africa

Apr 19, 2019 | Press Releases

Miami, FL –  U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, joined Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) on an official trip to conduct oversight of the United States Government programs in Africa. Rubio traveled to Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti to focus on U.S. support to counterterrorism operations in East Africa.
 
“The United States military and Intelligence Community are working with our partners in Kenya and Somalia to reduce the threat terrorist networks like Al-Shabaab and ISIS-Somalia pose to regional stability and U.S. interests,” Rubio said. “Djibouti’s strategic location plays a crucial role in hosting U.S. military personnel who are supporting the fight against terrorists in East Africa and AQAP in Yemen. I am proud of our men and women working to protect our security often under difficult circumstances in this part of the world.
 
“Additionally, the United States continues to invest substantial resources in health and anti-viral programs that are saving millions of lives in Africa,” Rubio continued. “As a strong supporter of the PEPFAR initiative, it is great to see firsthand the success of those efforts that were initiated under former President George W. Bush.”
