Obama tells Cameron that US values Britain in EU
By DESMOND BUTLERAssociated Press
The White House said that Obama told Cameron in a call Thursday that "the United States values a strong U.K. in a strong European Union."
Britain's future in the European Union is a hotly debated topic in London. Some Britons reacted strongly when a U.S. official made remarks similar to Obama's earlier this month.
The White House statement on the call came after Cameron postponed a key speech on the European Union. Many expected him to announce a referendum on Britain's future in the EU.
