PM lands in Algeria

PM lands in Algeria
David Cameron has landed in Algeria where he is holding talks with his Algerian counterpart about the threat of terrorism.

After touching down this afternoon, the Prime Minister said he would push for a "tough and intelligent" approach to dealing with the region's problems.

"What I want to do is work with the Algerian government, and with other governments in the region, to make sure that we do everything we can to combat terrorism in a way which is both tough and intelligent, and uses everything we have at our disposal, which will make them safer, make us safer, make the world safer," he said.

He also insisted that North Africa would not dealt with the same way that Tony Blair dealt with Afghanistan and Iraq: "I can give that assurance because we don't look at this region of the world and think that the answer is purely a military one, it isn't."

As well as National Security Adviser Sir Kim Darroch, Mr Cameron is accompanied by the UK Trade Envoy to Algeria, Lord Risby, emphasising that the visit is about both security and commercial links between the two countries.

Following the visit to Algiers, the Prime Minister will fly to the Liberian capital Monrovia where he will be co-chairing the UN Secretary General's High Level Panel on Development, along with the presidents of Indonesia and Liberia.

The meeting is aimed at finding replacements for the UN's Millennium Development Goals, which run out in 2015.

The Algeria talks come after the Government yesterday announced it was sending a total of 330 troops to West Africa in advisory and support roles to help combat the threat of Islamist extremism in Mali.
