MANILA, Philippines – President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will make a side trip to the United States to attend the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday (Manila time), Press Secretary Cerge Remonde confirmed.

Arroyo is expected in Bahrain on Tuesday, from Milan, Italy, where she met with the Filipino community. She was in Davos, Switzerland over the weekend for the World Economic Forum.

“The President has accepted the invitation of a group to attend the National Prayer Breakfast in the United States,” Remonde said in an interview on radio station dzXL.

Among those expected to attend the prayer breakfast would be US President Barack Obama, according to reports.

Arroyo is expected back in the country on Saturday, Remonde said.
