Obama to Make Final Int’l Trip

The White House has announced on Tuesday that US President Barack Obama will travel to Greece, Germany and Peru in November. The trip will likely be the last international tour of his presidency. The November 14-21 tour will come just one week after US voters choose who will follow Obama into the Oval Office and give the president a chance to solidify his foreign policy legacy. The first leg of the trip will see the US president in Athens, to meet with both his counterpart Prokopis Pavlopoulos and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, DPA reported. While in Berlin, President Obama is expected to meet with a host of European leaders, including French President Francois Hollande, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and British Prime Minister Theresa May, as well as German Chancellor Angela Merkel. With Merkel, Obama is scheduled to discuss common issues like the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, as well as economic ties. The Peru leg of the trip is likely to focus on the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit being held in Lima from November 18-20.
