PRIDE…David Cameron

BRITISH PRIME Minister, David Cameron, has spoken of his pride that the G8 summit is to come to Northern Ireland, and Fermanagh in several days time.

Speaking at a briefing for foreign press, he said:  “Frankly, 10 years ago, 20 years ago, it would have been unthinkable to hold a G8 in Northern Ireland, in County Fermanagh.


“Northern Ireland’s prospects have been transformed by the peace process in the last 20 years, and I think we’ll be able to show the world this is a modern and dynamic part of the United Kingdom.

He added: “So I’m looking forward to welcoming the world there, an extraordinarily beautiful place but also with wonderfully talented people.”

The leaders of the United States, Britain, Japan, Canada, Italy, Germany, France and Russia will descend on the Lough Erne Resort for talks on Monday and Tuesday (June 17 and 18).

He also encouraged: ‘make another trip and get back to Fermanagh and go and see the Giant’s Causeway, go and see some of the amazing sites of Northern Ireland’.

“I think it will be a great showcase for this part of Northern Ireland that people don’t know very well – I hope the eyes of the world will have a good look and like what they see.”
