Secretary of State Rex Tillerson continues his tour of Africa, after canceling events earlier in his trip due to sickness.
Tillerson visited a wildlife center in Kenya Sunday and discussed the importance of conservation and then took a trip to a memorial park in Nairobi, where he spoke about the joint effort by the countries to fight terrorism around the world.
“As our work continues to end terrorism, those who sought to divide us here have failed,” said Tillerson. Our commitment to work together as Americans and Kenyans is steadfast. It is enduring. And we will build on our shared values and our shared future, which remains very strong.”
The State Department said Tillerson was forced to skip out on some events Saturday, after not feeling well.
This is his first official trip to Africa as the secretary of state.
