Cam welcomes Obama 'determination'

David Cameron today welcomed  Barack Obama's "determination" to secure an EU-US trade deal.

Speaking at his first State of the Union speech since re-election, the US president said he was launching talks to secure "a comprehensive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership with the European Union".

"It's great that President Obama has set out his determination to agree a trade deal between the EU and the United States," Mr Cameron said.

"We discussed this issue on Monday and we are both committed to launching negotiations this year. A deal will create jobs on both sides of the Atlantic and make our countries more prosperous."

Mr Obama also announced an accelerated pull-out of US personnel from Afghanistan, with 34,000 troops set to come home within the next year.

Speaking in Washington, he also warned that North Korea's missile tests would only "isolate them further".
