Obama Visits Middle East

June 3, 2009

From the BBC, President Obama is traveling to Saudi Arabia and Egypt this week:

Barack Obama’s goal is to improve perceptions of the US and to push for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, says BBC Diplomatic Correspondent Jonathan Marcus.
In the process he wants to make other US strategic goals in the region – like stability in Iraq and the containment of Iran – easier to achieve.
To do this he needs Arab partners and this trip takes in two key nations – Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
