President Obama brings large delegation to meet King Salman in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

President Barack Obama arrived in Riyadh on Tuesday at the head of a heavyweight delegation including senior U.S. officials to meet the new Saudi KingSalman bin Abdulaziz.

The Saudi Royal Court issued a statement saying that King Salman stressed to Obama the importance of resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The two leaders also discussed the crises in Yemen and Syria and touched on the Iranian file, according to the statement.

Soon after Air Force One touched down at King Khalid International Airport in the Saudi capital, Riyadh, King Salman greeted Obama, who was accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Obama, who arrived after cutting short a trip to India, was greeted by a military honor guard and later a military band played the national anthems of the two countries, which have enjoyed more than 80 years of bi-lateral relations.

Saudi reception

King Salman headed a large reception of senior Saudi officials welcoming Obama, who has visited the Saudi kingdom as U.S. president on two previous occasions.

Obama was received by Saudi Crown Prince Muqrin bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Deputy Crown Prince and Interior Minister Mohammad bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, Riyadh Province Governor Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz, Royal Protocol President Mohammad bin Abdulrahman Al-Tubaishi, Saudi Ambassador to the United Sates Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir and U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Joseph Westphal.

Later, at Erga Palace in Riyadh, the U.S. and Saudi delegations chatted as they sat on chairs placed around the walls of a large room.

U.S. delegation

Obama arrived in Riyadh at the head of a large delegation, which included senior officials from past and present administrations, members of the U.S. Congress –both Republican and Democrat – and top U.S. security officials, signaling the strong ties between the two states.

Joining Obama in paying respects over the death of King Abdullah was Secretary of State John Kerry, who arrived on a separate flight from Germany, as well asRepublican statesmen James Baker, who served as secretary of state in theGeorge H.W. Bush administration, and Condoleezza Rice, who served as secretary of state for President George W. Bush.

Former security officials Stephen Hadley, a former U.S. National Security adviser, and Brent Scowcroft, national security advisor to presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush were also listed as part of the delegation.

Members from both ends of the U.S. political spectrum also took part in the visit, including Democrat Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives NancyPelosi and Republican Senator John McCain, who is often critical of Obama’s foreign policy.

Nature of visit

Ben Rhodes, the U.S. deputy National Security advisor, told reporters the trip to Riyadh was an “opportunity to both pay respects to the legacy of King Abdullah, who was a close partner with the United States and also to touch base on some of the issues where we’re working together with the Saudis.”

He said the issues included the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the situation in Yemen, the Iranian nuclear negotiations and the broader U.S.-Saudi relationship, according to a White House statement.

Rhodes said his understanding was that the majority of the delegation flew from the U.S. to Ramstein in Germany, where they met up with Secretary of State John Kerry to travel to Riyadh.

He said once the U.S. learned of King Abdullah’s death it worked to put together a delegation “that represented people who had been invested in the Saudi relationship for a long time and who had known King Abdullah well.”

Officials wanted the high-level delegation to be bipartisan and contain members of Congress because of the body’s interest in U.S.-Saudi policy.

Former Secretary of State Baker was quoted by the New York Times as stressing the importance of showing Saudi Arabia how much the United States valued the relationship between the two countries.

“This is an extraordinarily critical and sensitive time in the Middle East, when everything seems to be falling apart,” he was quoted as saying on board Kerry’s aircraft.

King Abdullah died on Friday after a short illness and was succeeded by KingSalman.

World leaders flocked to the Saudi capital Riyadh over the weekend to pay tribute to the late king.

Shortly after King Abdullah’s death, the White House issued a statement hailing him as a “candid” leader who “had the courage of his convictions.”

“As our countries worked together to confront many challenges, I always valued KingAbdullah’s perspective and appreciated our genuine and warm friendship,” said Obama.

“The closeness and strength of the partnership between our two countries is part of King Abdullah’s legacy.”

Kerry said in King Abdullah’s death, the United States had lost “a man of wisdom and vision.”

Why President Obama’s trip to India’s Republic Day is a big deal

हैलो हरेक!
(Hello Everyone!)

Why Obama’s trip to India’s Republic Day is a big deal

The unprecedented invitation to President Barack Obama, which officials said came as a surprise, would have been unheard of a few years ago as the relationship between the two countries stagnated. But Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who took office in May, sees the relationship with the United States as one that is good for both India and his ambitions, despite personal and political tensions. Modi was denied a visa by the U.S. government in 2005 due to alleged violations of religious freedom. Modi offered Obama the invitation after the men met in Washington in September.

[Prime Minister Modi is more politically conservative than President Obama;however the two men have good chemistry between them and mutual respect for each other.].

“I think President Obama was personally honored to receive that invitation,” White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said. “ I think he sees this as a potentially transitional if not transformational moment for the relationship, because we have a very strong and clear indication from India’s leadership that they want to elevate” our cooperation and relationship.

Everyone Loves a Parade!

First Lady Michelle Obama (R). President Barack Obama, Prime MinisterNarendra Modi, (wearing a ceremonial hat) and President Pranjab Mukherjeein front after India’s Republic Day Parade leaving out from the VIP area.

Obama will be both the first U.S. president to attend the parade and the first to visit India twice while in office. The invitation from Modi also underscores how the men both use social media — Modi put the news on Twitter and the White House publicly accepted via the network.

Obama was also scheduled to visit the Taj Mahal, but shortened his trip to travel to Saudi Arabia, where he will pay respects to the family of the late King Abdullah,who died last week.

Obama should expect to see quite a show filled with pomp and military precision.President Pranjab Mukherjee presides over the parade. It will start with Modi laying a wreath at India Gate to honor members of the military who were killed, followed by a 21-gun salute and the national anthem. The parade proceeds down Rajpath, a ceremonial boulevard, and ends at India’s war memorial. It’s an elaborate spectacle combines elements of a U.S. inauguration, a Russian victory parade and theTrooping of the Color in London, said Tanvi Madan, director of the India Project at the Brookings Institution.

Members of the military will march in formation, a nod to India’s military power and asModi wants to jointly develop weapons with the U.S. Madan said the Indian border security’s camel contingent— kind of like a cavalry unit but with camels — marches each year.

There will be dances by individuals and groups and elephants marching. A few dozen floats will roll down the wide boulevard; typically they come from one of India’s states. Others showcase government programs — it would be like having a float for Obamacare in the annual Rose Bowl parade.

Indian media is reporting that one theme this year will be Modi’s “Made in India”campaign, which aims to turn India into a global manufacturing hub.

Portions of the parade are open to the public, but require tickets. Needless to say security is going to be extremely, extremely tight. According to the Wall Street Journal, cellphones, food and even remote controlled car keys won’t be allowed on the parade route. Tradition dictates that India’s president and the visiting head of state travel together to the parade, but this year reports are that the Secret Service would rather have Obama travel in his own car, an armored limo known as The Beast.

Madan said this trip shows that the relationship between the two countries is getting serious.

“It’s India finally taking the us home to mom and saying here, this is the person I go talk to very quietly usually. I wouldn’t understate the symbolism,” she said.

NEW DELHI SUN JAN 25, 2015

 –

In a glow of bonhomie, [good-natured manner] U.S. President Barack Obama and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled a deal aimed at unlocking billions of dollars in nuclear trade, a step that both sides hope will help establish an enduring strategic partnership.

The two countries reached an understanding on two issues that, despite a groundbreaking 2006 agreement, had stopped U.S. companies from setting up reactors in India and became one of the major irritants in bilateral ties.

“We are committed to moving towards full implementation,” Obama told a joint news conference with Modi after he arrived in the Indian capital in a state visit. “This is an important step that shows how we can work together to elevate our relationship.”

The new deal resolved differences over the liability of suppliers to India in the event of a nuclear accident and U.S. demands on tracking the whereabouts of material supplied to the country, U.S. ambassador to India Richard Verma told reporters.

“Ultimately it’s up to the companies to go forward, but the two governments came to an understanding,” he added.

U.S. President Barack Obama & India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi wave towards the media ahead of their meeting at Hyderabad House in New Delhi. 

Signaling his determination to take ties to a higher level, Modi broke with protocol to meet and bear-hug Obama as he landed in New Delhi earlier in the day. It was a remarkable spectacle given that, just a year ago, Modi was persona non grata in Washington and denied a visa to the United States.

After a working lunch that included kebabs made with lotus stem, figs and spices, the two leaders got down to talks. They emerged with deals on defense cooperation that included the joint production of drone aircraft and equipment for Lockheed Martin Corp’s C-130 military transport plane.

They agreed to a number of financing initiatives aimed at helping India increase its use of renewable energy.

But Modi cautioned that work was still needed to create a solid partnership between the world’s two largest democracies.

“We have to convert a good start into lasting progress. This requires translating our vision into sustained action and concrete achievements,” he said, standing next to Obama.

Earlier, the two leaders walked and talked together in an elegant garden and sat outside over tea. Modi, who sold tea on a railway platform as a child, poured a cup for Obama.

On Monday, Obama will be the first U.S. president to attend India’s Republic Day parade, an annual show of military might long associated with the anti-Americanism of the Cold War, and will host a radio show with Modi.

His presence at the parade at Modi’s personal invitation is the latest revival in a roller-coaster relationship between the two largest democracies that just a year ago was in tatters.

Up to 40,000 security personnel have been deployed for the visit and 15,000 new closed-circuit surveillance cameras have been installed in the capital, according to media reports.

NEW VITALITY

The United States views India as a vast market and potential counterweight to China’s assertiveness in Asia, but frequently grows frustrated with the slow pace of economic reforms and unwillingness to side with Washington in international affairs.

Elected last May, Modi has injected a new vitality into the economy and foreign relations and, to Washington’s delight, begun pushing back against China’s growing assertiveness across Asia.

In a veiled reference to China, the leaders reiterated the “importance of safeguarding maritime security and ensuring freedom of navigation and overflight throughout the region, especially in the South China Sea.”

Obama will depart slightly early from India to travel to Saudi Arabia following the death of King Abdullah, instead of a planned visit to the Taj Mahal.

Like Obama, Modi rose from a modest home to break into a political elite dominated by powerful families. Aides say the two men bonded in Washington in September when Obama took Modi to the memorial of Martin Luther King, whose rights struggle was inspired by India’s Mahatma Gandhi.

President Obama scatters rose petals at the Mahatma Gandhi memorial at Rajghat in New Delhi. 


The “chemistry” they describe is striking because Modi’s politics is considerably to the right of Obama’s, and because he was banned from visiting the United States for nearly a decade after deadly Hindu-Muslim riots in a state he governed.

Obama, the first sitting U.S. president to visit India twice, also enjoyed a close friendship with Modi’s predecessor Manmohan Singh, who staked his premiership on the controversial nuclear deal that made India the sixth “legitimate” atomic power and marked a high point in Indo-U.S. relations.

The deal failed to deliver on a promise of business for U.S. companies because of India’s reluctance to shield suppliers from liability, a deviation from international norms that reflects the memory of the Bhopal industrial disaster.

Namaste!

2nd Annual Big Block of Cheese Day

The White House has a long history of opening its doors — digital or otherwise.  Even cast members from the West Wing got in on the fun making a promo video.

 –

After President Thomas Jefferson’s 1805 swearing-in ceremony at the U.S. Capitol, guests followed him home, forming one of our country’s earliest inaugural parades in the process.

The Lincoln White House’s stairways and halls were constantly packed with members of the public. Sometimes, they climbed through windows to get in.

And President Andrew Jackson — as the White House’s digital platforms have now immortalized — had a 1,400-pound block of cheese in the main foyer of the White House for an open house event with thousands of citizens and staff. Anyone could take a bite.

We’re here to let you know that level of access hasn’t fundamentally changed. It just looks a little bit different now.

[You can view Wednesday’s event’s topics that were tweeted to the Obama Administration from 9:15am – 6:00pm]

Welcome to the Second-Annual Big Block of Cheese Day, our virtual White House Open House. We’re really excited you’re here.  

All day long, members of the Administration are taking to social media to answer your questions about the President’s State of the Union Address last night, and whichever issue you care most about.
