Cameron to chair poverty meeting

Cameron to chair poverty meeting
David Cameron today called on world leaders to focus on “eradicating extreme poverty” as he chaired a summit in Liberia.

The UN high-level panel meeting was convened to agree a replacement for the Millennium Development Goals, which expire in 2015.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, the Prime Minister said the UN should pursue a twin-track approach dealing with extreme poverty as well as longer-term development goals.

“I think it’s very important that we keep the focus on eradicating extreme poverty,” he said.

“But I also think it’s important that we look at those things that keep countries poor – conflict, corruption, lack of justice, lack of the rule of law – those things matter as well as aid and money and that’s what I’ll be arguing for very strongly here in Liberia."

The Prime Minister reportedly sees the meeting as part of his wider aim of tackling the threat of terrorism in North and West Africa after also visiting Algeria and Libya.

Meanwhile in Mali, the French defence minister has said his country’s airstrikes on militants are sending fighters into “disarray”.
