The PMS confirmed the Prime Minister’s meeting with President Putin in Moscow on Monday and his trips to Berlin immediately afterwards and Paris on Tuesday. Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned that the debate over the EU budget would overshadow the Prime Minister’s G8 agenda, the PMS said this was part of a programme to meet leaders ahead of the G8 summit. Clearly there would be discussions of a wide range of issues at those meetings. The Prime Minister knew what he wished to discuss at these meetings and would make sure he got through his agenda. Put to her that the Chancellor had asked the Prime Minister to toughen his stance on the EU budget, the PMS said that the Prime Minister set out his views and had been very clear on the issue.
