WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Monday at a U.S.-European Union summit that the United States is willing to do its part to help resolve the European debt crisis.

Obama said the European crisis is a "huge issue" for the U.S. economy and that the United States has a stake in its successful conclusion.

European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said slower global growth is not solely due to the European Union and that other nations must act.
