WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama will attend the annual United Nations General Assembly meeting later this month.

The White House says Obama also will meet with world leaders on the sidelines of the conference while he's in New York from Sept. 19-21. The White House did not name any of the leaders that Obama may meet with during the trip.

The president also plans to address the Clinton Global Initiative, following up on speeches there last year and in 2009.

Former President Bill Clinton's annual gathering brings together current and former heads of state, business leaders and representatives of non-governmental and philanthropic organizations to come up with solutions to world problems.
