Obama to deliver speech to Muslim world in June




U.S. President Barack Obama, who has pledged to rebuild U.S. relations with the Muslim world, will give a key speech on the issue in Egypt on June 4, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Friday.


Obama reached out to Arabs and Muslims in a speech in the Turkish capital Ankara in April, his first visit as president to a predominantly Islamic nation.

In that speech, he said the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam, and also spoke of the Arab-Israeli peace process, saying he will actively pursue the goal of creating a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
   
 

Asked why Egypt was chosen for the June 4 speech, Gibbs said: 'It is a country that in may ways represents the heart of the Arab world."

Obama will make the speech a day before visiting the German city of Dresden and the Buchenwald concentration camp, Gibbs said.
