New York, Sept.17 : Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin will meet with foreign leaders next week at the United Nations, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday
Citing an unnamed strategist with John McCain's campaign, the paper said that McCain and Palin are expected to visit the U.N. next Tuesday, when President Bush will address the international body.
The meeting with heads of state will come during the annual opening of the U.N.'s General Assembly, the strategist said.
The move is designed to boost Palin's foreign policy credentials, the aide told the paper.
Palin's savvy in the field of foreign policy has been questioned, and the meetings aim to give her some exposure to foreign leaders while also showing how quickly she grasps international affairs.
