Obama Meets with British Leaders
US presidential contender Barack Obama met leader of the British opposition Conservative Party, David Cameron, at the House of Commons, his last engagement in London before flying back to the US at the end of his European and Middle Eastern tour. Obama had come from 10 Downing Street, where he had met British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Cameron took Obama onto College Green opposite the Houses of Parliament, before taking him back for a sit down chat in a sitting room in the House of Commons.
Earlier, Obama met British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at his official residence, 10 Downing Street, where the two held talks before coming out into the garden behind Number 10.
Brown offered Obama a chair on the terrace before the pair settled down for two hours of talks.
They later took a walk around Horse Guards Parade, the vast open space where military reviews are held.
Speaking to reporters after wrapping up talks with the Prime Minister, Obama said he had had a terrific conversation with Brown, which covered a wide range of topics including terrorism, climate change, and financial markets, as well as strengthening the trans-Atlantic relationship.
Earlier, he met former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who is now a Middle East envoy. The meeting lasted for just over an hour.
