From a philosophical angle,President Barack Obama described diplomacy as being more important now than ever before.
He told ambassadors to the United States that his administration was committed to working with countries to advance common goals,and that he looked forward to working with them to advance peace and prosperity.
Obama said diplomats previously discussed war and peace,but they now discuss everything from education,environment and even athletics.
He emphasized that the United States cannot solve its problems unless the solutions involve cooperation among nations.
