US President Barack Obama will host two South
American leaders at the White House next month, welcoming Chilean
President Sebastian Pinera and Peruvian President Ollanta Humala, the
White House said Wednesday.
The visits come amid greater economic attention to the region on the heels of Obama's trip to Mexico and Costa Rica last week and a planned trip by Vice President Joe Biden to Brazil, Colombia and Trinidad and Tobago later this month.
Pinera will meet with Obama June 4 and Humala will be at the White House June 11. They will discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations along with a range of bilateral and global issues, the White House said.
