BELFAST, Northern Ireland (KNOE 8 News/AP) - President Barack Obama says peace in Northern Ireland is a "blueprint" for those living amid conflict around the world, but he says the calm between Catholics and Protestants will face further tests.

At a speech today in Belfast, North Ireland, Obama summoned young people to take responsibility for their country's future, saying, "The terms of peace may be negotiated by leaders, but the fate of peace is up to you."

Obama is in Northern Ireland to attend the G-8 summit. He'll also meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta.
