United Kingdom's Prime Minister David Cameron spoke to journalists in Ise-Shima, Friday, following a day of discussions during the G7 summit.

During his press briefing, Cameron commented on Donald Trump's presumptive nomination as Republican presidential candidate, maintaining that the US and the UK will keep their 'Special Relationship' regardless of who is sitting in the White House or Downing Street. Cameron said, "I believe in the special relationship; I believe that the special relationship will work, whoever is in whichever jobs in the UK or the US. It's a shared interest about values and about security and prosperity in our world."

Cameron also announced that the G7 nations have decided to continue with existing sanctions against Russia beyond the June rollover. The British PM stressed, "The G7 is clear that existing sanctions must remain in place until the Minsk agreement is fully implemented. I believe that is an important decision."

Earlier on Friday the heads of state of the G7 nations gathered for the concluding session of this year's summit. Shortly after the meeting a declaration was published citing the G7 leaders' positions on several key issues including the global economy, the refugee crisis, climate change, health and trade.
