President Obama will host British Prime Minister David Cameron at the White House in the coming week.
Their meeting follows the worst terrorist attack in France in decades. Seventeen people were slain in attacks on a satirical newspaper, police and a kosher supermarket during a three-day spree across Paris.
The White House says the leaders will share a working dinner on Thursday, and then meet in the Oval Office on Friday to discuss a range of issues, from economic growth and international trade to the rise of Islamist militants and Russia's actions in Ukraine.
Cameron is among world leaders planning to attend a mass anti-terrorism rally Sunday in Paris.
Attorney General Eric Holder is attending a separate Paris meeting on fighting terrorism.
