Cameron hails G8 meeting a success on multiple fronts


British Prime Minister David Cameron is claiming a remarkable set of agreements for the latest G8 summit, especially on Syria, where he said the leaders had been able to bring to the table a number of issues that had previously been thought to be off limits. Importantly, the G8 declaration will also carry Russia’s signature.

“It’s no secret that there were very different views around the G8 table, but we all share a vital interest in bringing this conflict to an end, and helping the Syrian people to achieve the change they want,” said Cameron.

While the declaration contains no call for Bashar al-Assad to step down, it did contain an overt appeal to his loyalists to think of their country’s interests first before continuing to support him.
