According to media sources in the U.S., before his meeting with Austin, Biden received a detailed report from CIA Director, William Burns, on the expansion of Russia’s influence in Africa.

Russia’s influence, it was reported, including Zimbabwe, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Algeria and the Sahel and Sahara countries.

The CIA report said Russia strongly supports the Algerian regime militarily and politically.

It added that Russia is also discussing the establishment of a large logistical base that would give it an important outlet to countries located south of the Sahara Desert.

“This,” said the agency, “will threaten the interests of Washington and its allies there.” (middleeastmonitor.com)
