VERBATIM: Yellen made brief remarks to reporters ahead of the meeting, but avoided mention of South Africa’s recent decision to take part in joint navy drills with Russia and China off its east coast next month. South Africa is a key U.S. and Western partner, but also holds strong ties to Russia and China. It has also adopted a neutral stance over the war in Ukraine.
