America's treaty allies should expect the United States to continue to uphold mutual defense obligations, National Security Advisor Susan Rice told AFP Monday in her first public comments after Donald Trump's election win.

"The weight of this office, and the weight of American global leadership, and the responsibilities that it entails, and the history that we share, the interests that endure, make it reasonable for our allies and partners to expect that the United States will uphold its obligations," she said.
