(CNSNews.com) – In a toast to Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, President Barack Obama said Monday, “My neighbor’s child is my child,” which is a traditional Tanzanian saying and a favorite of the Tanzanian president’s wife, Salma Kikwete.

“I am told that Mama Kikwete is fond of a traditional Tanzanian saying – ‘My neighbor’s child is my child.’ And that sentiment I think also captures the feeling, the partnership between – our two countries must have.”

“We live thousands of miles apart, but as fellow human beings, we share a sense of obligation to each other, especially to the youngest among us,” Obama said.
