Updated: February 13, 2013 15:02 IST

US President Barack Obama appeared before a divided Congress for the State of the Union address, and outlined an ambitious agenda that focused on reviving the stagnant economy while also touching issues such as the war in Afghanistan, passing gun-control legislation, immigration law and attacking climate change. With a theme of strengthening the middle class, he proposed creating more jobs by investing in clean energy and creating new 'manufacturing innovation institutes', and spending more public money on education and improving the nation's infrastructure. Obama repeated his earlier calls for reducing the budget deficit through a mix of tax increases and spending cuts.
