WASHINGTON (Kyodo) -- U.S. national security adviser John Bolton on Thursday criticized China and Russia for employing "predatory practices" in Africa to stunt the continent's growth and economic independence.

"They are deliberately and aggressively targeting their investments in the region to gain a competitive advantage over the United States," Bolton said as he announced a new U.S. strategy toward Africa, established in part to counter rising Chinese and Russian influence in the region.
