President’s Meeting with Prime Minister Key of New Zealand
Today, President Obama invited Prime Minister John Key to play a round of golf in Hawaii. The two leaders have long discussed their shared interest in the sport, and they enjoyed the opportunity to spend several hours together on the golf course. President Obama and Prime Minister Key have developed a close partnership, which reflects the friendship and broad cooperation between the United States and New Zealand. While the two leaders are both enjoying some time off with their families and friends, they also reaffirmed our continued work together to deepen our trade relationship, enhance regional security, and support the democratic values that the United States and New Zealand share.
Obama, New Zealand PM hit golf course in Hawaii
HONOLULU (AP) – President Barack Obama is hitting the golf course in Hawaii with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key.
The two leaders teed off on a sunny and breezy morning on the island of Oahu. They’re at a course on a military base near Obama’s rented vacation home. Key’s son and Obama’s personal aide completed the foursome.
Obama is an avid golfer, but he rarely expands his playing partners outside a small circle of close friends and advisers.
Among those who have received a rare invite to play with the president in the past are former President Bill Clinton and Republican House Speaker John Boehner.
Key became prime minister of New Zealand in 2008.
Thank you The Associated Press.
