Obama In N. Ireland; Speech, G-8, Putin On Tap

Posted: Updated:
BELFAST, Northern Ireland -

President Barack Obama will appeal to Northern Ireland's youth to sustain their peace in his first opportunity to highlight the role the United States has played helping bring about reconciliation in the country.

Obama arrived at Belfast Monday morning. After his Belfast speech he will attend a two-day summit of the Group of Eight industrial economies.

Monday, he'll meet on the sidelines of the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Topics for the two leaders range from Syria to arms control. Russia has criticized Obama's decision to arm Syrian rebels and has dismissed U.S. claims that President Bashar Assad's regime has used chemical weapons against Syrians.

Russia is a member of the G-8. So are Canada, Japan, Britain, France, Italy and Germany.
