I’ll visit Indonesia this year, assures Obama
Washington: US President Barack Obama is assuring the people of Indonesia that he is looking forward to visiting his former home once the health care debate is resolved.
Obama put off a trip to Indonesia until this summer as the health care overhaul gained steam in Congress this week. A vote in the House is likely this weekend, and Obama decided he should remain in Washington.
In an interview airing on Friday on RCTI, Indonesia`s largest commercial television network, Obama says it makes sense to wait until June so that he and his family are not rushed when they visit Indonesia, where he lived for four years as a child.
Obama says he looks forward to buying some bakso (bah-so), a meatball soup, when he returns to Indonesia.
