President Barack Obama will welcome Italian President Sergio Mattarella to the White House next month.

Mattarella is scheduled to visit Obama on Feb. 8, during a weeklong visit to the U.S.

Obama spokesman Josh Earnest says the leaders will discuss efforts to counter the Islamic State group and the global refugee crisis. They'll also talk about economic developments in Europe and a pending trans-Atlantic trade agreement between the U.S. and Europe, among other issues. Mattarella has been president of Italy for about a year.
