WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama hosts his first meeting with Haitian President Michel Martelly to discuss the country's economic and political future. Martelly will be at the White House today, a day after meeting with Secretary of State John Kerry.

It's the first official sit-down between the two leaders.

The White House says Obama will discuss creating conditions for Haiti's long-term growth.

Haiti recently marked the fourth anniversary of a massive 2010 earthquake that killed more than 300,000.
