WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper talked by telephone on Saturday to discuss next week's NATO summit in Wales and the situation in Iraq, the White House said.

Obama stressed that agreeing on increased defence investment in all areas would be a top priority at the NATO summit, it added.
