President Barack Obama says he and leaders of seven other major industrial nations are focusing on economic concerns during discussions at Camp David. Obama told reporters Saturday that the leaders covered a lot of ground in talks the night before, from Iran to Syria and North Korea.

The president also mentioned the debt crisis in Europe among the countries that share the euro as their currency. The crisis directly affects many of the leaders joining Obama for the Group of Eight meeting at the presidential retreat in Maryland.

He says they're all committed to a path that combines "growth and stability and fiscal consolidation."

Obama also says Saturday's discussions will cover the energy markets.
