BISMARCK N.D. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Friday while traveling aboard Air Force One to discuss the crises in Iraq and Ukraine, a White House spokesman said.

Obama said earlier in the day he was considering a range of options to respond to the conflict in Iraq, and would consult with international leaders over the weekend about the crisis.
