GiNN-BerlinKontor.—US-Präsident Barack OBAMA wird zum Ende seiner Amtszeit Deutschland besuchen. Das Weiße Haus teilte mit, der scheidende Präsident werde am 16. November nach Berlin kommen – to say goodbye.
The White House announced on Oct. 25 that US President Barack OBAMA will be paying one last visit to the German capital – his last before he leaves Office. Obama is set to stop by Berlin on November 16th, after the US national election takes place on November 8th and following a trip to Athens.
Later the President will head to an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Lima, Peru. Obama last landed in Germany in April 2016 to drop by the Hanover Messe.
In Hanover, Obama praised Chancellor Angela Merkel for her “courageous” leadership during the ongoing refugee crisis, pushed the controversial TTIP free trade deal with the EU and US, and urged a preservation of a united Europe, ahead of the Brexit referendum vote in June.
His Berlin trip will involve a meeting with Merkel and the leaders of Italy, France and the UK. Discussion will most likely centre around the ongoing conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, as well as the refugee crisis and TTIP. (Quelle: whitehouse.gov)
