John Bolton: The US Will No Longer Support Unsuccessful And Unaccountable UN Peacekeeping Missions

During his speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., National Security Adviser John Bolton said the United States would no longer support United Nations peacekeeping missions that lack focus and are wasteful.


Having served as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under President George W. Bush, Bolton’s speech was to outline President Donald Trump’s administration’s Africa Strategy.

"The United States will no longer provide indiscriminate assistance across the entire continent, without focus or prioritization and we will no longer support unproductive, unsuccessful, and unaccountable U.N. peacekeeping missions. We want something more to show for Americans' hard-earned taxpayer dollars,” Bolton said.

"Our objective is to resolve conflicts, not freeze them in perpetuity," he added.

Bolton said because the American people are a generous people, they expect the money to be put to good use.

When it comes to financial assistance to the continent of Africa, Bolton said the administration’s priority for the dollars that are sent is ensuring it is spent “efficiently and effectively, to advance peace, stability, independence, and prosperity in the region.”


Keeping in line with the National Defense Strategy, the Africa Strategy is to help facilitate the shift in focus of counterterrorism to peer-to-peer nation competitors, such as Russia and China.
