15/01/2010Obama, Sarkozy to organise Haiti conference

US President Barack Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, along with other countries will organise an international conference on Haiti's reconstruction.

Paris – US President Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, along "with Brazil, Canada, and other countries directly concerned," will organise an international conference on Haiti's reconstruction, the French presidency said Thursday.

Sarkozy would hold talks over the coming hours with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Elysee statement added.

The decision was taken during a phone call between Obama and Sarkozy on Thursday evening, it said.

The Elysee, the French president's office, said Obama had called his French counterpart to discuss the "situation in Haiti and efforts by the US and France to help victims of the earthquake".

"The two presidents, determined to face the humanitarian emergency, agreed to closely coordinate and intensify their efforts on the ground in order to save lives," it added.
