Djibouti, a strategic former French colony and port that guards the entrance to the Red Sea and Suez Canal, is also a key contributing nation to the African Union force fighting Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shebab insurgents in neighbouring Somalia. “Djibouti is making a very significant contribution, helping to push back against extremism,” Kerry said during a visit to a mosque with Djiboutian officials. Kerry is making the first visit by a Secretary of State to Djibouti, and officials said he will thank the government for its help in supporting some 500 US citizens fleeing the civil war in nearby Yemen.
