At the G20 summit, Obama uses the occasion to press his argument that the international community should not forget about the threat posed by the Taliban. The story at the BBC:

US President Barack Obama has called for better use of Nato resources in Afghanistan, saying al-Qaeda is a greater threat to Europe than the US.

Speaking before a Nato summit, Mr Obama said the US wanted to see Europe with stronger defences, as it wanted to be a partner rather than a patron to Europe.
