ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Pawlenty plans to weigh in on the "challenges and opportunities" posed by the turmoil in the Middle East during a foreign policy address next week in New York.

An aide to Pawlenty says the former Minnesota governor will use the speech at the Council on Foreign Relations to lay out his foreign affairs philosophy. The aide spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a not-yet-public schedule.

The Arab Spring uprisings have played out in bloody protests across northern Africa and Mideast nations such as Syria, Bahrain and Yemen. Pawlenty has been critical of Democratic President Barack Obama's approach to the region's instability.

It will be the second major policy address for Pawlenty. Earlier this month, he laid out his economic plan during a speech in Chicago.
