Schedule for the Week of December 12, 2011

On Monday, the President looks forward to welcoming Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to the White House. The two leaders will hold talks on the removal of U.S. military forces from Iraq, and our efforts to start a new chapter in the comprehensive strategic partnership between the United States and Iraq. The President honors the sacrifices and achievements of all those who have served in Iraq, and of the Iraqi people, to reach this moment full of promise for an enduring US-Iraq friendship as we end America's war in Iraq.

On Tuesday, the President will conduct interviews with local television anchors from across the country about the end of the war in Iraq and the importance of ensuring that taxes don't go up on middle-class families next year.

On Wednesday, the President and the First Lady will travel to Ft. Bragg, North Carolina where they will deliver remarks to troops. As we definitively end America's war in Iraq this month, the President wanted to speak directly to the troops at Ft. Bragg and to members of the Armed Forces and their families everywhere. The President will speak about the enormous sacrifices and achievements of the brave Americans who served in the Iraq War, and he will speak about the extraordinary milestone of bringing the war in Iraq to an end. Like many other military installations across this nation, during the war in Iraq, service members from Ft. Bragg - and their families - have provided remarkable service to our country through their deployments to Iraq.

On Thursday, the President will attend meetings at the White House.

On Friday, the President will deliver remarks at the Biennial Convention of the Union for Reform Judaism.
