President Obama will spend the majority of today meeting with Prime Minister Cameron of the United Kingdom.

The two leaders will first have a private Oval Office meeting in the late morning, and then afterward, the president and the vice president will host a working lunch in the State Dining Room.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says that first and foremost a discussion on Afghanistan would be on the top of the agenda.

When the two leaders met recently, late last month, during the G-20 Summit in Toronto, Canada, Mr. Cameron said getting Afghanistan right this year is imperative. 

“I think particularly on the issue of Afghanistan, which is the number one foreign policy and security policy priority for my government, making progress this year, putting everything we have into getting it right this year, is vitally important,” Cameron said.

In the early afternoon, the two leaders will take questions from press in the East Room of the White House.
