WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the U.S. is willing to provide whatever help France needs as it investigates the terrorist attacks in Paris earlier this month.

Obama spoke to French President Francois Hollande (frahn-SWAH' oh-LAWND') on Tuesday ahead of his State of the Union address. The White House says Hollande updated Obama on the investigation and thanked him for sending Secretary of State John Kerry to Paris.

The two leaders also discussed the Ukraine crisis and called for more funding to bolster Ukraine's government. The White House says they also conferred on the security situation in Nigeria, where Boko Haram extremists are killing civilians. The two presidents called for credible, peaceful elections in Nigeria.

The White House says Obama and Hollande also discussed nuclear negotiations with Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
