Obama to meet Australia, Canada leaders before return to US

LIMA, Peru (AP) – President Barack Obama is holding separate meetings with the leaders of Australia and Canada before he wraps up the final foreign trip of his presidency.

He’ll meet Sunday with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in between other sessions with world leaders attending an annual Asia-Pacific summit being held in Lima, Peru.

Obama also planned to take questions from the journalists who accompanied him to Greece, Germany and Peru before he flies back to Washington.

Some of those questions are likely to be about Donald Trump, whose election to succeed Obama overshadowed much of the president’s trip.

Obama sought to reassure concerned leaders that the U.S. will stay true to its commitments despite the election of a president who opposed Obama on practically every issue.
