President Obama to Urge European Unity in 4-Day Trip to Poland and Spain

President Obama is attending the NATO Summit and visiting troops in Spain.

The NATO leaders are also expected to announce new initiatives to mitigate the effects of the refugee crisis and an expanded training role in assisting the Iraqi troops in their fight against ISIS.

Following two days heavy with national security meetings, President Obama will travel to Seville, Spain where he will take in the sights of some of the city's cultural landmarks.

Obama will then visit the U.S. Navy base in Rota where he will deliver remarks to American service members and their families and tour the USS Ross destroyer. Afterwards, he heads to Madrid, where he will visit the U.S. embassy.

CSIS Director of the Europe Program Heather Conley noted Wednesday the first lady and her daughters Malia and Sasha just arrived back from Spain, where it is rumored that Malia will be spending her gap year.

"I think the president needs to make sure a very special intern is settled in Madrid," Conley said.
