JUST IN: The president is expected to deliver a statement on Libya before leaving the country for Latin America later tonight.
Of the UN Security Council resolution regarding Libya, the White House issued a paper statement last night describing the president’s calls with UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron and France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy, where they “agreed that Libya must immediately comply with all terms of the resolution and that violence against the civilian population of Libya must cease. The leaders agreed to coordinate closely on next steps, and to continue working with Arab and other international partners to ensure the enforcement of UN Security Council resolutions on Libya.”
After the Presidential Daily Briefing, Obama will conduct taped interviews with three local U.S. stations (WSOC Charlotte, WSVN Miami and WPVI Philadelphia) focusing on his upcoming Latin America trip.
Finally, late tonight, the First Family will leave for the president’s trip to Brazil, Chile, and El Salvador. They are expected to land in Brazil Saturday morning.
There is no press briefing scheduled today.
