Obama plans to visit Bali in November: Governor
US President Barack Obama has announced plans to visit Bali in November, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika said Wednesday.
“I just met US Ambassador to Indonesia Scot Marciel. He told me Obama would visit Bali, most likely in November,” Pastika said.
He added that US State Secretary Hillary Clinton would also go to Bali in July, to attend an international meeting and to check on preparations in Bali to welcome Obama.
Pastika said Bali would be ready to receive the US president.
“Security will be coordinated by the central government, the National Police and related institutions,” he said.
Obama had earlier planned to visit Bali in 2010, but cancelled the visit because of home affairs problems.
