Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain stands ‘ready to assist’ Japan

British Prime Minister David Cameron

March 12, 2011 (KATAKAMI.COM)  —  Prime Minister David Cameron has sent sincere sympathies to the people of Japan on behalf of everyone in Britain.

Speaking in Brussels on Friday ( 3/10/2011)  Mr. David Cameron said:

“We do not yet know what the full effects of this disaster will be but on behalf of everyone in Britain, I want to send our sympathies and condolences to the people of Japan and to their Government. These are incredibly distressing times and we stand with you.”

He said that, like many others around the world, he had “been shocked at the devastating scale of this earthquake and the tsunami it has triggered.”

Reiterating his offer of support to Japan, the Prime Minister said:

“We have made clear to the Japanese Government that if they need any additional or specialist help then we stand ready to assist.

“And of course the British Embassy in Tokyo, and our network of Embassies around the Pacific region will offer all the support that is needed to any affected British nationals.”

He added that the Government would be keeping its response and support for Japan and the region under close review over the coming days.

The Prime Minister has been in close contact with the Foreign Secretary William Hague who, earlier today, chaired a meeting of the Government’s Emergency Committee, COBR, to review Britain’s contribution to the international response.

Sending his thoughts to the people of Japan, William Hague said that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is in contact with the Japanese government and are offering all assistance they can as Japan responds to this terrible disaster.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is also working urgently to provide consular assistance to British Nationals in Japan.

Following tsunami warnings across the region British Embassies and Consulates are preparing to provide assistance. Rapid Deployment Teams are ready to travel immediately to the areas of most need.

UK nationals in Japan should contact the British Embassy in Tokyo on +(81) 3 5211 1100 or the Consulate-General in Osaka on +(81) 6 6120 5600.  (*)

Building a better future by David Cameron

British Prime Minister David Cameron

 

By : DAVID CAMERON ( The Blue Blog of  The Conservative Party )

 

 

 

March 6, 2011 (KATAKAMI.COM / THE BLUE BLOG ) —  I’m in Cardiff this weekend with three clear messages for the party. One: thank you for everything you’ve done. We’re in government delivering Conservative pledges – from bringing some sense to our public finances to dismantling Labour’s nanny state. This wouldn’t have happened without the constant work of activists up and down the country over this past year. So thank you.

Two: get ready because we’ve got some big elections coming up – council elections, Welsh Assembly elections, Scottish Parliament elections and of course, the AV referendum. AV is fundamentally unfair – it makes politics and politicians less accountable and it means some people’s votes can count more than others. We’ve got to get out there, take these arguments to the country and urge them to vote no to AV.

The third message is to do with our economy. In just over two weeks, we’re going to unveil the most pro-enterprise, pro-business Budget for a generation. It’s going to be a no-nonsense, roll-our-sleeves up Budget in which we do everything we can to make it easier for businesses to grow, invest and take people on.

Make no mistake, I am an enterprise Prime Minister. Every summit I go to, every trip I make, every foreign leader I meet, I’m trying to drum up new trade or business for Britain. I know some people don’t like me doing that. But do these critics think the Germans and the French and the Americans are all sitting at home waiting for business to fall on to their lap? Of course not. They’re getting out there, and so am I.

This is an enterprise government too. Everywhere we can we’re breaking down the barriers to business growth – cutting corporation tax, gripping regulation, bringing in an enterprise allowance to help those who are unemployed set up their own business. But there’s so much more to do. Right now in our country there are what I would call the enemies of enterprise, whether it’s bureaucrats who concoct ridiculous rules or town hall officials who take ages to make planning decisions. Believe me, we are taking them on.

Enterprise is in our party’s DNA. We have always been on the side of the doers, the grafters, the entrepreneurs. They are the wealth creators and the job creators, the ones who will drive Britain’s prosperity in the years to come, and that’s why this government is doing everything possible to get behind them today.  (*)

March 2, 2011 (KATAKAMI.COM) — British Prime Minister David Cameron has welcomed Afghan President Hamid Karzai to Number 10 and said Britain continues to have a “strong relationship” with Afghanistan.

Speaking in a press conference with Mr Karzai, the PM said he remained “cautiously optimistic” about progress in Afghanistan and insisted the growing Afghan forces were increasingly successful and would begin to take a lead on security from this year.

“Real progress is being made every single day with our support. The Afghan government is taking greater responsibility for its own affairs.

“The build-up of the Afghan National Army is on target, it is now over 150,000 strong, the Afghan police has grown to over 117,000.

“And, while there are real challenges remaining, they are both increasingly successful national security forces.”

The Prime Minister stressed Britain was an “all-weather friend to Afghanistan not a fair-weather friend” and would remain involved in the country after troops are withdrawn in 2015.

Mr Cameron also said 2011 was a decisive year and called for “reconciliation and reintegration” for insurgents prepared to renounce violence and cut ties to Al Qaeda.

“It is time for the Taliban to start this journey and make this year the decisive year for peace in Afghanistan”.

President Karzai paid tribute to the sacrifices British troops have made while serving in Afghanistan and said he hoped Afghanistan will be a future partner rather than a burden.

During the press conference, Mr Cameron also took questions on the latest situation in Libya.

The PM said that the Libyan people must not be left to their fate. He said that the UK was making contact with opposition groups who have occupied Benghazi and parts of eastern Libya.

He added that Britain would step up its efforts to “isolate and pressurise” the Gaddafi regime and prevent it from using military hardware against its own people.   (*)
