Secretary of State Rex Tillerson continues his tour of Africa, after canceling events earlier in his trip due to sickness.

Tillerson arrived in Kenya on Friday afternoon for the third stop on his five-country tour of Africa.

If the meeting occurs, Trump would become the first sitting U.S. president to ever meet with a North Korean leader.

Kenya's Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma bids farewell to U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as he boards his plane to depart Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, March 12, 2018.

In September, the Trump administration added Chad, a key counterterrorism ally, to its updated travel ban.

While on the plane, Mattis said he's planning to stay in his lane and not discuss the diplomatic efforts to convince North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

Tillerson said the US will assist Nigeria with latest security equipment and intelligence sharing in its efforts toward the safe return of the abducted schoolgirls.

"As we have had success in defeating ISIS in Iraq and Syria, we knew that violence would flee that area, and we knew that Africa was there area they would come", Tillerson said.

"Three of the countries house three of the four largest U.S. embassies in Africa", said Yamamoto, during a press briefing ahead of the trip.

Chad has been vital in the fight against Boko Haram and against ISIS in West Africa with its soldiers in the front line. "These steps I think are going to allow us to begin to normalise the travel relationship with Chad", he told reporters.

Tillerson said Chad had made important steps to strengthen control over its security and passports.

Tillerson is the highest ranking USA official to visit Nigeria since Donald Trump was inaugurated as president in January 2017.
