Obama to attend Asia Pacific Cooperation Summit

LIMA, PERU (NBC) — President Obama arrived in Peru Friday night to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit.

It is the last stop of his final foreign tour as President.

Air Force One touched down in Lima on a flight from Berlin, with a refueling stop in Portugal.

The President was greeted on the tarmac by the U.S Ambassador to Peru and several Peruvian officials.

He walked past a small honor guard as he went to board his limousine.

Mr. Obama planned to start his schedule in Peru Saturday morning by meeting with Peru’s president.

He will also hold a town hall with young people and have what is expected to be his final meeting with the Chinese president Xi Jinping.

The President will attend the economic summit with Asian leaders on Sunday and take questions from reporters before returning to Washington.
