L'AQUILA, Italy (CNN) - President Barack Obama revealed to G-8 colleagues at a dinner Wednesday that he's planning a nuclear security summit in Washington for next March, according to senior administration officials.
Obama first raised the idea of bringing major nations together for such a summit earlier in the week at a news conference with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Obama said then he would like a follow-up summit held in Moscow to deal with the thorny issue of preventing nations like Iran and North Korea from getting nuclear weapons.
But getting G-8 members like Russia to sign on to new sanctions against Iran is proving difficult for Obama.
The senior administration officials added that a G-8 declaration condemning the recent post-election violence in Iran will stop short of sanctions.
Let's have a national public option plan healthcare summit first......Give Americans what they need.....Forget the GOP....Take care of US.....
I sure do like our new President.
I believe that if the States that have received (and will receive) stimulus money put it to use as soon as they get it, things will start turning around.
Some states seem to be sitting on the money or using it for other things, and then their Senators complain and whine about no jobs.
We need someone to check on why this is happening.
Here's the thing. At the last G 20 Summit, they said the 'involvement of the emerging Nations would be [required] for Global economic recovery'.
That is a lot of good TALK, and they will Talk for the next 30 years.
ALL THEY have to do is GO BACK 30 years to the people who started the Fair Trade movement.
Ask THEM what they saw coming. HIRE them to set World Trading policies!
It is time to STOP chasing cheap labour!
Obama does not know what to do. He has no idea. He wants to spend tax-payers money. He took his family all over Europe spending our tax-payers money. He is a hypocrite.
how will the republicans spin this one?
A nuclear summit with President "Peace in our Time" Obama. God hlep us all!
Obama, if you are not going to help the economy then stay in africa or russia or where ever you are and lets see if Biden can help,
if not VOTE THEM ALL OUT
Ok somebody will bomb them if they go "nuclear war" but we seems to agree if they go nuclear for energy.
So why can't the US go also nuclear for independence from OPEC, less carbon?
Will it go the same way than the wind farm from Pickens team...
in the drain?
A lot of talks, very little efficient actions for now
Next March????? We'll be dead by then!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama's pandering to other countries is getting sickening. Meanwhile, N. Korea is flexing it's nuclear muscle not to mention Iran's contempt toward the US. This President is a weak, misguided, inexperienced man living in his own make-believe world. Unfortunatly,with every passing day,he puts America in more danger. Wake up People!
Thank you for trying to save Mother Earth, but Revelation has revealed that stars will FALL from the sky. We are going to all be fried.
turn Iran into a parking lot, it really has not tried to join the world very hard
N. Korea as well
OH PLEASE somebody impeach this idiot before he gets our country blown off the face of the earth!
