British Prime Minister David Cameron met with US President Barack Obama at the White House and guess what? BP dominated their issues.
This was David Cameron's first visit to Washington as Prime Minister. A chance to have a one-on-one meeting with US President Barack Obama.
The two leaders met in the White House Oval Office on Tuesday, followed by a working lunch.
After that, Cameron and Obama held a joint news conference. BP's oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico dominated questions by reporters.
"On BP, which we discussed at some length, I completely understand the anger that exists right across America. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a catastrophe, for the environment, for the fishing industry, for tourism, I've been absolutely clear about that. And like President Obama I have also been clear that it is BP's role to cap the leak, to clean up the mess and to pay appropriate compensation."
David Cameron said, Cameron brushed aside claims that BP lobbied Gordon Brown's Labour government to release the Lockerbie bomber from a Scottish jail last year. It's claimed the oil giant wanted the bomber released to boost business ties in Libya.
On other issues, Obama said his administration was pushing the US Senate to move forward on a defense industry trade agreement with Britain.
The two leaders also discussed the global economy, Mid East peace and Afghanistan, where Cameron wants to withdraw all 10,000 British troops by 2015.
