WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says Uruguay's president is planning to visit next month.

The White House says the May 12 visit will highlight the Obama administration's support for President Jose Mujica's (moo-HEE'-kuh) record on human rights and global security. The White House says President Barack Obama also wants to discuss growing economic ties and other issues.
