The Wall Street Journal, citing an unnamed Republican strategist, is reporting that GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, who has been criticized for lacking foreign policy bona fides, will meet with foreign leaders at the United Nations next week in an effort to "boost her foreign-policy credentials."
"The meetings will give her some exposure and experience with foreign leaders," the strategist told the newspaper. "It's a great idea."
The Journal suggests that the meetings could take place on Tuesday at the opening of the U.N. General Assembly and that Republican presidential nominee John McCain will introduce Palin to the foreign leaders.
The McCain campaign would not confirm the report to CBS News.
