Cameron: I am a supporter of the Arab Spring

A student asked the Prime Minister "what is your next step in Arab Spring countries?"

He replied: "I am a supporter of the Arab Spring". He said that all countries should be free to follow their own paths, but that he wanted to encourage the "building blocks of democracy" such as rule of law, women's rights and a free press.

Echoing his earlier words delivered in a speech to the UN General Assembly he said we should "judge these new governments by what they do" instead of fearing them.
