British PM will defy boycott calls to attend CHOGM – The Telegraph


British Prime Minister, David Cameron will attend the Commonwealth Summit in November in Sri Lanka, The Telegraph reported.

Calls on Mr Cameron to boycott the event risked an embarrassing split with Buckingham Palace, had the Queen travelled to the meeting as the Commonwealth’s head, the newspaper reported.

“We believe that the attendance of many world leaders and the global media will help to shine a light on what is going on the country, what has been achieved and what more needs to be done, The Telegraph reported quoting a British government spokesman.

“And the PM will use his visit to see the situation in the country for himself and be clear on what progress is needed.”
