U.S. President Barack Obama Tuesday called new British Prime Minister David Cameron and delivered his congratulations, the White House said.

There were no more details from the White House on the call, which was believed to be one of the first congratulation calls from the world leaders for Cameron after the Conservative Party leader was appointed by Queen Elizabeth II as prime minister.

In a statement outside the Downing Street No. 10, Cameron said he wants to rebuild trust in politics, promising to be "honest about what government can achieve" and pledges to build a more " responsible society."

Britain is one of the United States' closest allies, and its foreign policy emphasizes close coordination with the United States.

The two countries continually consult on foreign policy issues and global problems and share major foreign and security policy objectives. The U.S.-Britain relationship is also viewed as the corner of the Transatlantic relationship.
