El Salvador ready to welcome Barack Obama

The El Salvador government said “everything is ready” to receive U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday.

“The government of El Salvador has made all the necessary arrangements to prepare for the visit of the president,” read a press release from El Salvador’s government. “With two months to plan the visit, four teams – security, agenda, communications and protocol – of working groups were formed to organize the visit.”

El Salvador President Mauricio Funes and first lady Vanda Pignato will host a dinner in honor of the U.S. president on Tuesday night. Approximately 200 guests will be attending. Funes will also discuss security with the U.S. leader.

Obama and his family will visit the archeological site of San Andrés as part of their trip Wednesday.
The statement said that the president will be accompanied by his wife Michelle Obama and his two daughters on the trip to San Andrés, a complex of pyramids and ceremony centers that could belong to the Mayans.

The president and his entourage are expected to return to Washington D.C. that same afternoon.
