Obama Telephone Call

The PMS informed the press that the Prime Minister and President Obama were scheduled to speak this afternoon. It would be the eighth time they had spoken on the phone since Obama became President. It was expected that the call would cover the global economy and preparations for the G20 Summit, as well as developments on Afghanistan.

Asked when the Prime Minister and President Obama last spoke on the telephone, the PMS said that it had been in late July.

Asked if Tony Blair had more frequent telephone calls with the White House, the PMS said that it was an important and special relationship and that each Prime Minister and President dealt with it in a separate way; the Prime Minister and President Obama spoke regularly.
