Report: Obama and Cameron to meet on oil spill Saturday

President Barack Obama will meet with British Prime Minister David Cameron on the BP oil spill on Saturday, according to CNN.

The two leaders will meet in Canada during the G-20 summit. Obama and Cameron spoke on the telephone earlier this month about the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

The meeting comes on the heels of Obama's conclave with BP executives last week, after which he announced the creation of a $20 billion escrow fund paid for by the company to fund claims related to the spill.

Members of Congress have debated the fund; many have supported it, but some Republicans have said it is a fleecing of BP — most notably, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton (R-Texas).
