The White House announced Monday that President Obama spoke with both British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy regarding the ongoing financial crisis in the Eurozone. The call comes a day after German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Sarkozy said they have reached an agreement on a "durable" solution for the sovereign debt problems in Greece.
Merkel and Sarkozy, the leaders of Europe's two largest economies, also pledged to do "all that is necessary" to ensure that European banks have sufficient capital.
According to the White House, "Prime Minister Cameron and President Sarkozy agreed with the President that decisive action is needed in order to finally resolve the crisis and assure economic recovery, both within the euro area and beyond it."
Meanwhile, the markets seem reassured with the statements.
