Irish president meets Cameron at Downing Street

British Prime Minister David Cameron meets with Irish President Michael Higgins at 10 Downing Street in central London
In the second day of his historic state visit to the United Kingdom, Irish President Michael D. Higgings joined Prime Minister David Cameron for lunch in London.

At 10 Downing Street, both leaders pointed out the “remarkable” transformation of Anglo-Irish relations and the “great kind of cooperation” between London and Dublin.

“It is really remarkable how Anglo-Irish relations have not only been transformed but I see them on a ever-increasing gradient,” Cameron said.

The Tory leader expressed his “excitement” about several new projects in which the two countries are currently working on, but stressed that it’s important “to keep on the work of reconciliation, including in Northern Ireland”

Higgings, in turn, said that he was “absolutely delighted" to be making this historic visit and highlated the “growing cooperation” in every aspects -particularly in trade and the economy- between Ireland and the United Kingdom.

“I hope that the visit will enable great opportunities for the deepening of the peace process that we have, that requires our continuing vigilance”, said Higgings, and thanked the british Prime Minister for an “incredible reception”.

Later today, the Irish President will meet with the British Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, at Buckingham Palace and in the evening, he and his wife, Sabina, will attend a banquet at the Guildhall in London.

This is the first time an Irish President visits the United Kingdom since Ireland’s independence in 1922.
