Obama, Brit leader: Afghanistan in critical period

TORONTO (AP) - President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday that the troubled Afghanistan war must show progress this year.

The two leaders, concluding their first meeting since the conservative British leader took power last month with a coalition government, said their nations have the right strategy in Afghanistan.

 "This period that we are in is going to be critical," Obama said.

Added Cameron: "Making progress this year, putting everything we have into getting it right this year is vitally important."
