Obama seeks to calm US allies over Trump concerns
Nov.15, NY: President Barack Obama has sought to assure America's allies that President-elect Donald Trump will honour the country's international alliances when he takes office in January.
Mr Obama told reporters that Mr Trump had expressed an interest in maintaining the US commitment to Nato.
This came hours before Mr Obama was due to arrive in the Greek capital, Athens, on his final official overseas trip.
Mr Obama will later travel on to Germany and then to Peru.
Security has been stepped up in Athens where anti-US protests are planned.
Mr Obama is expected to use his final foreign visit to calm nerves over the forthcoming administration of Mr Trump.
