WASHINGTON (AFP) - US President Barack Obama said Friday he saw "glimmers of hope" that the US economy was pulling out of a paralyzing recession but warned of "a lot of work" yet to nurse it back to health.

"We're starting to see progress, and if we stick with it, if we don't flinch in the face of some difficulties, then I feel absolutely convinced that we are going to get this economy back on track," Obama said.

His comments came after a meeting at the White House with top economic strategists, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke, and senior Obama economic adviser Lawrence Summers.
