American vice president thinks Africa is one country

Vice President Joe Biden has made yet another flub. During his speech at the United States-Africa Summit yesterday, Vice President Biden referred to Africa as a “nation.”

Africa is, of course, a 54-country continent.In reference to Africa joining the status of the most lucrative nations in the world, Vice President Biden stated “there is no reason the nation of Africa cannot and should not join the ranks of the world’s most prosperous nations in the near term-in the decades ahead.”

The Ukrainian gas company that Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, just joined is a growing conglomerate that has been compared to “Exxon in its early days.”

Burisma Holdings announced Tuesday that the younger Biden will join the company as the head of its legal unit.

Burisma is a private oil and gas company founded in 2002, under joint activity agreements with Ukrainian state-owned producers, and quickly grew to become the largest private gas producer in Ukraine. The company’s average daily output stood at 10.5 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day in September 2013, and could double that figure within two years. All of the company’s gas is sold to industrial customers in Ukraine.
