John Kerry: U.S. Reviewing Relationship With Uganda After Anti-Gay Law Signed

Feb 24, 2014

WASHINGTON, Feb 24 (Reuters) - The United States said on Monday it is reviewing its relationship with Uganda's government, including U.S. assistance programs that are heavily focused on fighting HIV/AIDS, after its president signed a law imposing harsh penalties for homosexuality.

"Now that this law has been enacted, we are beginning an internal review of our relationship with the Government of Uganda to ensure that all dimensions of our engagement, including assistance programs, uphold our anti-discrimination policies and principles and reflect our values," U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement.
