Nationwide News understands that British Prime Minister, David Cameron and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are to visit the island next week.

Cameron is expected to visit next Wednesday where he’ll give a special address to parliament.

Abe is set to make a brief visit, enroute to the 70th anniversary celebrations of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

It’s understood that Abe will use his visit to lobby Jamaica to exert its influence with other CARICOM states, in support of efforts to reform the UN Security Council.

Jamaica’s Ambassador to the UN, Courtenay Rattray is the incumbent Chairman of the UN Intergovernmental Negotiations on Security Council reform.

His tenure is set to expire before the end of the year.

The Security Council is the United Nations’ most powerful body, with primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security.

Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, Princess Anne of Edinburgh, will also be in Jamaica next week for a working visit between September 30 and October 2.

Her visit coincides with her attendance at the Caribbean-Canada Emerging Leaders’ Dialogue.
