    Washington: US President Barack Obama will hold talks with leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in California on February 15-16, the White House said on Wednesday.

    The summit, which will take place at Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage, California, is the first hosted by the US with the ASEAN leaders.

    ASEAN groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
