Bungling and mumbling corrects itself on Brown visit


See earlier

Now on the web site at 20.01:

Mr Brown will not be the first serving leader visit the new president in Washington.

Mr Obama is due to host Japanese prime minister Taro Aso on Tuesday.

BBC political correspondent Reeta Chakrabarti said Mr Brown's visit was important because many people would be monitoring the personal relationship that might develop between the two leaders.

There is no truth in the rumour that Reeta Chakrabarti, who was quoted earlier as saying that Brown could be the first world leader to visit Obama, was fed the story by Jackie Ashley.
