The White House says Vice President Joe Biden will travel next month to Colombia and the Dominican Republic to discuss regional ties with leaders in those Latin American nations.

Biden is adding the two stops on to a previously announced trip to Brazil for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He'll be attending a June 16 game in Natal, Brazil, between the U.S. and Ghana before meeting with Brazil's president in Brasilia.

The White House says in Colombia, Biden will meet with President Juan Manuel Santos, where security and economic issues will be on the agenda. He'll meet in the Dominican Republic with President Danilo Medina.

Biden has emerged as the Obama administration's frequent emissary to Latin America, visiting the region multiple times in the past few years.
