In between G-20 economic summit sessions, President Obama will continue his tour Thursday of leaders around the world, the White House announced this afternoon.
Laying out his schedule, the White House said Obama will meet with South Korean leaders first thing in the morning, London time. Sure to be high on the agenda is the upcoming launch of what North Korea says is a satellite, but which the United States, Japan, and South Korea say is a missile test.
He also plans to meet with top officials of Saudi Arabia and India, before holding a press conference at about 12:45 p.m. EST. The kingdom, of course, is crucial to any progress in the Arab world, and India is essential to dealing with Pakistan as well as issues including global warming.
Obama met today with the presidents of Russia and China, and announced plans to visit both countries later this year.
