Haiti's leader coming to White House next week
By Michael A. Fletcher
Haitian President Rene Préval, whose country is still reeling from the January earthquake that devastated it, is scheduled to meet with President Obama at the White House on Wednesday.
The two leaders will discuss how the international community can best support Haiti's rebuilding efforts, according to a statement released Friday evening by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.
"The president looks forward to welcoming President Préval to the White House to underscore his pledge to the Haitian people that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America," the statement said.
Préval faced criticism from his countrymen in the immediate aftermath of the quake for maintaining a low profile.
