Obama: Trade deal with S. Korea not complete

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - President Barack Obama is being forced to defend his economic policies against foreign suspicions that the U.S. is engineering a weak dollar.

Speaking in South Korea today, Obama said, "The most important thing that the United States can do for the world economy is to grow." He says that's because it continues to be the world's largest market and "a huge engine for all other countries to grow."

Obama also says the U.S. and South Korea must continue working toward a free trade agreement, but it could be weeks before a deal is secured.

The president is in Seoul for meetings of the Group of 20 economic powers.
