Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama is continuing his efforts to improve ties with the Muslim world.

He leaves for Saudi Arabia to meet with King Abdullah on Tuesday.

The President will also stop in Egypt to deliver a highly publicized speech aimed at offering U.S. friendship to the Muslim world.

When asked why the President chose Egypt for this speech, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the country in many ways represents the "heart of the Arab world."

During the six-day trip, Obama will also make stops in Germany and France.

In Dresden, Germany, he will visit the Buchenwald concentration camp. In France, he will help commemorate the 65th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy.
