President Obama practices some Africa diplomacy and celebrates a holiday on this Cinco de Mayo Monday.

In the morning, Obama welcomes President Ismail Omar Guelleh of Djibouti to discuss their strategic partnership in Africa.

The White House cited "the important role Djibouti plays in preventing conflict, promoting regional stability, and countering extremism as host to the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa at Camp Lemonnier."

Other topics include "security and counterterrorism, development, trade, and energy cooperation," says the White House.

Later Monday afternoon, Obama hosts a Rose Garden reception for Cinco de Mayo. The president is likely to address the immigration issue during the event.
