Peru President to Travel To White House for Talks with Obama

President Ollanta Humala will travel to Washington D.C. in June to meet with his American counterpart, Barack Obama, the White House said.

Humala and Obama will meet at the White House on June 11, according to a statement by the press secretary.

“The President [Obama] looks forward to following up on U.S. efforts to support the Humala Administration’s agenda of social inclusion, broad based economic growth, and citizen security,” the statement said.

“The two presidents will also discuss our joint work to advance negotiations toward completion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, as well as cooperation on education, energy and climate change, science and technology, and the bilateral trade relationship.”

Humala met with Obama in July 2011, a couple weeks before the Peruvian president was sworn in to office. Humala had traveled to Washington for meetings with other high-level American officials, but Obama made a surprise visit even though they were not scheduled to hold talks.
