US President Barack Obama had a telephonic talk with British Prime Minister David Cameroon on the upcoming G-20 Summit and current situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

"The President noted the historic nature of the Prime Minister's statement last week on the inquiry into the tragic events of Bloody Sunday, commending its contribution to Northern Ireland's reconciliation efforts," the White House said in a statement.

"Prime Minister Cameroon updated the President on his government's June 22 budget announcement. The two leaders discussed ongoing implementation of our shared strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan," it said.

Obama and Cameroon agreed on the importance of rapid action by the European Union to resume the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program.

"The President looks forward to continuing their ongoing discussion of global issues on Saturday in Toronto, when he and the Prime Minister hold their first bilateral meeting since the Prime Minister took office," the White House said.
