Obama to visit Mexico in May


WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is slated to travel to Mexico and Costa Rica in early May to push for stronger economic ties, the White House announced Wednesday.

In quick trip scheduled for May 2-4, Obama will meet with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who was elected last year and took office in December. He last met with Obama at the White House in November.

From there, Obama will head to Costa Rica, where President Laura Chinchilla will host a meeting of several Central American leaders. The White House did not release a list of the participating countries or a detailed description of the agenda.

Obama said he hoped the visit would strengthen cooperation on a variety of issues.
