3 African Nations Stand By U.N. Votes Despite U.S. Threat To Cut Aid

VOA News: African Nations Defiant to U.S. Aid Threat Over U.N. Voting
“Three African nations singled out for their track record of voting against the U.S. at the United Nations say they stand by their votes — even if those choices may result in the U.S. cutting back on aid. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley made the threat to cut aid in a written statement last week after the State Department released its annual report on U.N. voting trends by member countries. … The United States provides hundreds of millions of dollars in aid each year to [Burundi, South Africa, and Zimbabwe]. It goes, among other things, toward improving HIV/AIDS prevention, economic growth, agriculture, food security, refugee assistance, education, and maternal and child health” (Powell, 5/2).
