ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday (March 23) said the U.S. will offer any assistance necessary to probe the Islamic State attacks in Brussels on Tuesday that killed at least 31 people and wounded some 260 others. Obama was speaking from Buenos Aires, Argentina where he was meeting the country's new center-right leader, Mauricio Macri, on a visit to reset diplomatic relations and strengthen trade ties after years of tension between the two countries. Obama said the United States and Argentina stand with the Belgians in their sorrow because both the U.S. and Argentina have known the pain "viscerally" of attacks at home. Obama said the fight against Islamic State will continue until the group is defeated, saying its defeat is a "top priority" for the United States.
