British Prime Minister David Cameron has arrived in the US for a three-day visit. During his stay, he will meet with President Barack Obama to discuss a wide range of issues including the global economy, Afghanistan’ s transition, the Iranian nuclear standoff and Syria’s unrest.

In a joint editorial in Tuesday’s Washington Post, the two leaders condemned what they called the "horrific violence against innocent civilians" by the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. They added they are seeking to prepare the ground for a change of leadership in Syria.
