Paris (AFP) – French President Francois Hollande will go on a state visit to the United States in February, his office announced Friday.

Hollande and his American counterpart Barack Obama last met at a G20 summit in Russia in September. They have been liaising on key global issues including the Syrian crisis and Iran’s disputed nuclear program.

The French leader’s U.S. trip will start on February 11, the Elysee said.
