President Barack Obama is taking a break from domestic concerns to put himself forward as an international statesman who has re-engaged the United States with the world after years of perceived neglect.

In a speech Thursday to foreign leaders at the annual U.N. General Assembly, Obama plans to serve up a broad-brush survey of
global hot spots.

He will emphasize efforts his administration is making to promote peace and stability from Iraq and Afghanistan to the Middle East while countering nuclear concerns in Iran and North Korea.

The address will be the president's second to the world body.
Obama will also meet privately with the leaders of China, Japan,
Colombia, Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan.
