Continuing his holiday vacation in Hawaii, President Barack Obama played a round of golf with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key on Thursday.
A White Houses statement said Obama and Key have long discussed their shared interest in golf and enjoyed the opportunity to spend several hours together on the course.
The two leaders have developed a close partnership that reflects the friendship and broad cooperation between the U.S. and New Zealand, the White House said.
The White House noted that Obama and Key reaffirmed that the two countries would continue to work together to deepen their trade relationship, enhance regional security, and support their shared democratic values.
Obama has spent a lot of time on the golf course during his two-week vacation in Hawaii, although his partners have usually been limited to personal friends and close aides.
Following the golf outing with Key, Obama took his daughters Malia and Sasha for a private tour of the Honolulu Zoo.
