BERLIN, May 10 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama will visit the German capital and hold talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel on June 18-19 after a G8 summit in Northern Ireland, a German government spokesman said on Friday.

Details on this working visit will be provided as soon as they are available, Spokesman Georg Streiter told a regular news briefing, adding that Merkel is looking forward to the visit and the talks which will cover a broad range of bilateral and global issues including the further deepening of the transatlantic relationship.

The visit will be Obama's first official trip to Berlin as U.S. president after delivering a foreign policy speech in the German capital in 2008 as a presidential candidate.

The trip also takes place on the 50th anniversary of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy's famous speech in West Berlin in 1963 when he said "Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am a Berliner.)
