Obama Cameron Libya, U.S. President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister, David Cameron, are sounding a harmonic tone in their approach to protecting civilians from attacks by Libyan government forces Muammar Gaddafi.
In a press conference outside the residence of British Prime Minister, President Obama and his British counterpart, said the truce would no efforts to overthrow the Libyan leader. Obama said the NATO military action in Libya has made, and the pressure on Gaddafi to give up continues.
“Well, first of all, I think we’ve made enormous progress in Libya. We have saved lives as a result of our concerted actions,” said Obama.
The president said he would not commit any more U.S. military resources the effort, even though France and some other NATO allies are asking for that.
Prime Minister Cameron said he and Obama agree that the allies should continue to heat up in Libya.
“So this is a moment once in a generation to grasp. It is time to draw back and think about our own problems and interests. This is our problem, and this is massively in our interests,” Cameron said.
Both leaders agreed that the United Nations mandate authorizing military action in Libya does not call for regime change, but the president agreed with the prime minister that Gaddafi has to go.
“It will be difficult to fulfill the UN mandate security for the Libyan people, so long as Gaddafi and his regime continue to attack,” said Obama.
Obama and Cameron both ruled out sending ground troops to Libya. They agreed to fight Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi will be a slow and steady, and the British leader counseled patience and persistence.
The president said there is no secret option, super-effective to use air power to force out the Libyan leader.
Cameron said he supports Obama’s call to restart the peace process in the Middle East, including his controversial call for Israel to return to its 1967 borders, with mutual agreement by land swaps.
“Once again, congratulations to the President in his recent speech on the Middle East, which was bold, he was a visionary, and outlined what is needed in the clearest terms possible – an end to terror against Israelis and the restoration of the dignity of the Palestinians, “said Cameron.
The president said that achieving progress toward peace in the Middle East would require what he called “heartbreaking commitment” by both parties. And he said that the need to resume the talks.
“What I am absolutely sure of is that if left untreated, we will not make any progress. And neither the Israeli nor the Palestinian people will be well served,” said Obama.
Obama arrived with force against the Palestinians plan to pursue statehood through a UN resolution. Cameron said his new government would have to wait and see approach to the issue.
The president and prime minister showed some differences in their methods to combat debt. Cameron said it could take different paths, but we hope to finish in the same place. His government has provided massive budget cuts, hoping to regain financial health.
In the state of the relationship between the U.S. and Britain, said Obama is “stronger than ever.” Some observers have questioned the health of the “special relationship”, but the two leaders, as well as Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, have come out of his way of saying that not only special, but essential.
