Obama vows foreign policy progress before leaving office

US President Barack Obama says he’s confident he can make significant progress on foreign policy in the next 10 months.

Obama is addressing ambassadors and other diplomats recently returned from overseas posts during a conference at the State Department. He’s describing a stay-the-course approach to ongoing challenges.

The president says the US will keep fighting the Islamic State group on all fronts and work to close the Guantanamo Bay prison. He says he’ll also work to enforce a global climate agreement and engage with Asia.

Obama says he’s looking forward to his historic trip to Cuba starting Sunday. He says the US is helping create opportunity in Latin America.
