WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama will welcome Haitian President Michel Martelly to the White House next week.

The Oval Office meeting is set for Thursday, when Obama also addresses the annual National Prayer Breakfast.

The White House provided no details about the agenda for the meeting with Martelly.

Haiti recently marked the fourth anniversary of a massive January 2010 earthquake that killed more than 300,000 people, displaced 1.5 million and toppled tens of thousands of buildings.
