1st Day for the Obama's prior attending the G20 Conference in Brittain

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Barack Obama, the rising star and within 3 months has become the leading world leader. As one of the most popular Presidents to attend the G20 Conference, President Barack Obama is doing what he does best and with ease. He truly is in his element, as he announced new arms negotiations with the Russian president, then had a discussion with the Chinese President about North Korea, and then talked with the British prime minister about the global economy. In the following clip, President Obama presses for Economic Reform.

So how does he end his busy day on Wednesday? How about a cup of tea with Queen Elizabeth II. Wow.. He is living his dream and is becoming more popular every day. In Europe, you might say that he is still on his 'honeymoon'. No other U.S. President from modern time had his popularity last so long at the beginning of the presidency. President Obama appears to be breaking every prior record for a U.S. President, starting with his popularity.
For being his first trip overseas as President, his second day will allow him with his first face-to-face meeting with all the world leaders except Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Already known from his meeting with the Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, both leaders confirmed that talks would soon begin "to work out a new, comprehensive, legally binding agreement on reducing and limiting strategic offensive arms."
President Obama plans on future travel in July and meet Medvedev in Russia again in July. Things to be discussed in July will be a common interest in "reducing nuclear stockpiles and promoting nuclear nonproliferation" across the world.
Another issue already discussed was an arms issue with the Chinese President Hu Jintao after President Obama's discussion with the Russian President. Apparently, North Korea has planned to launch what they say is a satellite, that most likely will happen as early as this weekend. Obama views this launch as "a provocative act," and has plans to seek action from the U.N. Security Council if there is a launch. Obama believes that the launch is a violation of Security Council resolutions regarding the launch of ballistic missiles.
There were discussions about the global economy and human rights issues with Chinese President Hu Jintao.
In their conversions, President Obama accepted an invitation to visit China, and most likely will take place in the fall or winter months of 2009.
At the top of the list as expected, is the subject of 'global economy', and President Obama wants every leader to treat this subject with urgency.

Obama finished his whirlwind of meetings with tea at Buckingham Palace with the British monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, where, according to media reports, the president gave the queen a fully loaded, engraved iPod and a rare, signed songbook from American composer Richard Rodgers.
"It was a wonderful visit," Obama said as he and his wife, first lady Michelle Obama, left the palace, according to media reports. "Her Majesty is delightful."
