Well, I just had a very productive, comprehensive discussion with the President. I want to thank him for taking time to discuss a number of issues – economic issues, regional, security issues, issues that the United States is very committed to assisting Senegal on addressing. I will have more to say about this in my upcoming speech at the university.

But suffice it to say that the United States is very impressed and admiring of the resilience of the Senegalese people, your commitment to democracy, and we want to be a good partner and a good friend as you continue to build this important nation into one that is a model not only for the Senegalese people, but for the entire world. Thank you.
