WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama on Tuesday was greeting foreign diplomats at a White House reception, hailing a "new era of engagement in the world."

Said the president: "We're doing together what none of us can achieve by ourselves."

Scores of ambassadors and other foreign officials were invited to the East Room on Tuesday for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at an annual diplomatic corps reception. Appearing with first lady Michelle Obama, the president told his guests that in a world that is more interconnected than ever, it is in America's best interest for all countries to prosper.

Obama said the governments were working together on global economic growth, confronting violent extremism, securing nuclear weapons and achieving peace from the Middle East to Sudan.
