美国国务卿希拉里·克林顿前往乌干达,将与乌干达总统穆塞韦尼举行会谈。

预计克林顿星期四与穆塞韦尼会谈时,将讨论乌干达作为美国在地区安全事务中的重要伙伴的作用,并商讨如何加强民主制度和改善人权。

克林顿星期三向非洲各国领导人发出了警告说,他们必须尊重本国人民的权利,否则将面临失去权力的命运。

克林顿星期三在塞内加尔发表的一次演说中指出,非洲人正要求某些非洲国家进行变革,在这些国家里,少数特权阶层飞黄腾达,而大部分人民却陷于贫困之中。

 

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is traveling to Uganda for talks with President Yoweri Museveni.

Clinton will use the talks Thursday to discuss Uganda's role as a key U.S. partner in regional security, as well as to encourage stronger democratic institutions and human rights.

On Wednesday, Clinton warned African leaders that they must respect their people's rights or be destined to lose power.

She said during a speech in Senegal that Africans are demanding change in countries where a small elite prospers while most of the population is stuck in poverty.
