Today Secretary Hillary Clinton attended President Obama's bilateral with Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy at the White House.

After that meeting, at 6:30 p.m. there was a bilateral with His Excellency Lee Myung-Bak, President of the Republic of Korea at the Blair House, Washington D.C. Lee is meeting for talks with President Obama over the growing tensions with North Korea.

Tomorrow Obama and Lee will attend a U.S. summit. Trade and economic issues will be on the table tomorrow but North Korea will top the agenda at the summit, a Seoul presidential official told a Korean news agency, adding that Lee would seek a written U.S. commitment to the provision of a nuclear "umbrella" for Seoul in a summit joint statement.
