18th May 2010, Comments 0 comments

New British Prime Minister David Cameron will travel to Germany Friday for talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel, Berlin said, in his first announced trip abroad since taking office last week.

Merkel's spokesman Ulrich Wilhelm said in a statement Tuesday that Cameron would be welcomed with military honours at the chancellery in Berlin.

"The focus of the subsequent conversation will be current financial and economic policy questions as well as bilateral, European policy and international issues," he said.

A joint press conference will follow.

A spokesman from Cameron's office declined to comment on his travel plans.

US President Barack Obama has invited Cameron to visit him in July, and the new British premier is expected at the Group of 20 summit in Toronto next month.
