In a joint opinion article that appeared in Thursday's Times of London newspaper and released on Wednesday night in Washington, Obama and Cameron outlined the principles of the U.S.-British alliance ahead of two days of White House meetings.

The United States and Europe have imposed a variety of sanctions against Russia in retaliation.

"If we allow such fundamental breaches of international law to go unchecked, we will all suffer from the instability that would follow. Our strong and united response has sent an unmistakable message that the international community will not stand by as Russia attempts to destabilize Ukraine," they wrote.

Obama and Cameron vowed a united front on Wednesday against the threat posed by Islamist extremists and their "distorted ideology."

They, noting the Paris attacks last week against a satirical newspaper, said extremists would not muzzle freedom of speech.
