LONDON, September 12 (Itar-Tass) — The UK and Russia share a common aim of tackling terrorism and preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said in an exclusive interview with Itar-Tass ahead of his official talks in Moscow on Monday.
“On foreign affairs, we share a common aim of tackling terrorism and the extremist ideology that supports it, and preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons to countries like Iran,” he said. “On Libya, both Britain and Russia now recognize the National Transitional Council and agreed at the recent Paris summit on the goal of a stable, democratic and united Libya.”
Speaking about such areas where UK-Russia cooperation could be strengthened, Cameron noted that “at a time when the world is undergoing fundamental changes it’s essential that two leading countries – both members of the UN Security Council and the G8 - are able to engage effectively with each other to tackle the challenges and opportunities we face.”
“That’s why we’ve put our relationship on a stronger footing in the last year, and I look forward to good discussions on trade, foreign policy and the rule of law,” he said.
“Of course, Britain and Russia are both hosting the next Summer and Winter Olympic Games so I’m sure we’ll be working together on those,” the prime minister said. “I hope we can share experience of running a successful London 2012 to help Russian preparations for the Sochi Winter Olympics in 2014.”
