British PM Cameron Lists Major Issues To Be Addressed At G8 Summit

Noting “Britain is hosting this year’s G8 summit, which gets underway next week (June 17-18) in Northern Ireland,” VOA News reports, “Prime Minister David Cameron has listed the major issues he wants leaders to tackle when they gather at the Lough Erne resort.” The news service notes G8 Research Center Director John Kirton said, “David Cameron said back in November last year that he wanted his summit to focus on trade, tax and transparency. And since then, rising up on the agenda has been another T — terrorism — and then of course the escalating war in Syria.” “Even before it starts, Kirton says the summit is shaping up to be one of ‘significant success,'” VOA writes, adding, “For example, this month’s London summit on malnutrition saw governments and business pledge an additional four billion dollars over the next seven years” (DeCapua, 6/12).
