Obama will continue to make international travel



Washington: US President Barack Obama would continue to make international travel and meet global leaders during his second term, which began January 20, the White House on Tuesday said, without going into the details of it.

"The President will continue to travel, as he did during his first term, continuing to pursue the development and deepening of our important multilaterally and bilateral relationships around the world," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters.

Obama will participate in various summits and conferences, as he has in his first term, Carney said.

"I don't have any specific travel announcements to make," he said in response to a question.

In his first four-year term, which ended on January 20, Obama made 24 overseas trip visiting nearly three dozen countries, including the historic trip to India in November 2010, which in fact was his longest stay in any foreign country.
