President Obama Arrives in Laos for Historic Visit

President Obama has arrived in Laos for a summit of Southeast Asian countries, marking the first visit by an American president here. During his four-day visit, the president will attend a town hall meeting with Asian youth in Luang Prabang, Laos, participate in numerous cultural photo-ops, and deliver a major address to the people of Laos on the dark so-called Legacy of War. That issue is most likely to catch the world’s attention during Obama’s visit as he discusses the United States’ efforts to clean up unexploded ordnance that has littered Laos for five decades.
