David Cameron goes to DC

The British Foreign Secretary, Lord David Cameron visited Washington D.C on 6 December to reaffirm British and American cooperation in current world affairs. It was Cameron’s first visit to the US since his appointment as Foreign Secretary.   

The purpose of Cameron’s trip has been to “reaffirm strength of diplomatic, security and trade ties with UK’s closest ally.” The primary discussion has centred on the need for the US to continue their financial and military aid to Ukraine. Speaking at the Aspen Security Forum (pictured) Cameron argued for Long-range missiles to given to Ukraine, by the US, for the purpose of attacking Crimea, currently under Russian control. Cameron stated that by attacking Crimea, “there is nothing that will drive Russia further back and put Putin more on the back foot.” 

The talks were strictly in the interest of supplying Ukraine with weaponry and nothing more, as Cameron distinguished “As long as you don’t cross the red line of NATO soldiers fighting Russia soldiers, we should do everything we can to continue to support Ukraine.”

Cameron’s visit has been met with backlash as the Foreign Secretary had to deny “interfering” with US politics. In a meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Cameron said “I hope I’ve been very clear to say I’m not telling you how to do this vote and how to run your life or anything else.” There was a tone of urgency in Cameron’s address as he referred to “an evil dictator…in the 1930’s.” A clear comparison between Putin and Adolf Hitler.

The visit was spurred on by the failure of the US Congress to approve a $110 billion war package for Ukraine and Israel. Britain is currently the second highest investor in the Ukraine war, after the US, putting £9.3 billion into “military, humanitarian and economic support.” Should the US formulate and pass a successful support bill for Ukraine, Cameron’s trip would be a success.
