Cameron in Israel to talk peace & Iran

(Tel Aviv) – British Prime Minister David Cameron arrived in Israel for a two-day visit during which he will meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders to discuss the peace talks and Iran. It is Cameron’s first official visit since he took over as premier in 2010.
After landing at Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv, Cameron went straight to Jerusalem to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for talks focusing on “Iran’s military nuclear programme, the peace process and bilateral ties,” an aide to the Israeli leader said.
On Thursday, he was to meet with Palestinian leader Mahmud Abbas in the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, Palestinian officials said. Cameron’s visit comes as the US-led peace negotiations struggle to make headway before an April 29 deadline, with US Secretary of State John Kerry pushing both leaders to accept a framework proposal that would extend the talks to the year’s end.
Ahead of his arrival, Downing Street said Cameron would focus on the opportunities that a peace agreement would bring.
