Obama, African leaders to talk security, economics story image

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says even as African nations face challenges, a stronger continent is emerging.

Obama is speaking at the start of a day of discussions centered on security and governance issues in Africa. The talks cap an unprecedented three-day U.S.-Africa summit in Washington aimed in part at boosting American economic ties with Africa.

Obama says the governance talks will focus on accountability, transparency and recognizing human rights. He says the security talks will focus on how the U.S. can be a good partner with Africa, even as the continent's security forces and peacekeepers take the lead in fighting off threats.

The president will close the summit with a late afternoon news conference.
