President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron said they are both committed to their military plans in Afghanistan, in a speech Wednesday in the Rose Garden at the White House, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Both leaders said they were standing firm against recent calls for withdrawal from both countries. Support for the war has been waning in both countries in recent months.
In the joint speech, Cameron said, "We will not give up on this mission," while Obama said the United States' commitment in Afghanistan is a, "steady, responsible transition process."
Later on in the speech, both leaders addressed the topic of Iran and its cooperation with the international community. Cameron has recently joined Obama in discouraging Israel from attacking Iran with a military strike, as reported by the New York Times.
Along with discussions involving international and military talk, both men also talked about the economic crisis that is effecting both countries. Obama said they have different ideas for the solution to the crisis, they both have the same intent on improving the economies of their countries.
Obama will host Cameron in a state dinner Wednesday night at the White House.
