Alassane Ouattara, President of Côte d’Ivoire

The United States and the Côte d’Ivoire have strong ties through the United Nations; the U.S. provides more than a quarter of the funding for the U.N. Operation in Cote d'Ivoire. Obama also offered support to Ouattara in 2011 when he became president. A State Dinner would only strengthen their relationship.
