PARIS – US President Barack Obama arrived in Paris late Friday for a visit of at least one day to take part in ceremonies commemorating the 65th anniversary of D-Day.
Obama flew to Orly Airport directly from Germany, where he had toured the historic city of Dresden and met Chancellor Angela Merkel, before proceeding to the former Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald.
Obama is scheduled to meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy Saturday for talks on a broad range of topics, including Afghanistan, global warming and Iran’s nuclear programme.
Also on Saturday, Obama and Sarkozy will join British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Britain’s Prince Charles and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, as well as thousands of World War II veterans for ceremonies at the cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. (read more)
