Wednesday, January 26, 2011

President Barack Obama says he plans “to forge new alliances for progress in the Americas” in a visit to Brazil, Chile and El Salvador in March.

“Around the globe, we are standing with those who take responsibility,” he says in remarks prepared for delivery in tonight’s State of the Union address.

The trip will be Obama’s first to South America, either as president or as a private citizen, said Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser.
