REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
BEFORE MEETING WITH LEADERS FROM UNASUR COUNTRIES
Hyatt Hotel
Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
8:25 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT:  Good morning, everybody.  I just want to say very quickly I'm very grateful for the opportunity to meet with my colleagues from the south and participate in the meeting. UNASUR is doing some excellent work in their efforts in the region on things like energy and security.  I have a lot to learn and I very much look forward to listening and figuring out how we can work together more effectively.  So hopefully the meeting itself will go more smoothly than getting you guys in to take pictures.  (Laughter.) 
All right?  Thank you, everybody.
