United Nations: President Barack Obama said
on Thursday he would make his twice-postponed trip to Indonesia in
November, making good on a promise to travel to the
Muslim-majority nation where he lived as a boy.
Obama called off previous plans to make his first visit
to Indonesia as president due to his ultimately successful
drive to pass health care reform and then over the Gulf of
Mexico oil spill.
The president noted in a speech to the UN General
Assembly that he had already announced plans to visit India in
November, adding that "I will continue to Indonesia, the
world`s largest Muslim-majority country."
Obama will then make previously scheduled trips to South
Korea and Japan.
