Cameron to Visit Next Year

SEOUL, South Korea — British Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday that he would visit Russia next year, signaling an improvement in ties after a freeze caused by the murder of Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006.

“I’m very pleased to take up the invitation of a visit to Russia next year,” Cameron told reporters after a meeting with President Dmitry Medvedev at the G20 summit in South Korea.

Litvinenko’s poisoning death was not mentioned by Medvedev and Cameron, who said they focused on G20, North Korea, Iran, an upcoming NATO summit in Lisbon and economic cooperation. “It has been a very positive meeting,” Cameron said in a statement.

“We have recently managed to advance on a number of issues,” Medvedev said.
