Cameron: West shouldn't impose its values on Middle East, North Africa

The British Prime Minister has said that Western nations should not impose their values on Middle East and North Africa countries, Press TV reported.

"The mistake we often make in the West is to think that because the people in this region want democracy, they will want it in the same way with the same outcomes that we do", David Cameron told the 66th UN General Assembly meeting.

He said that the West should refrain from imposing its values or a single template on the region, referring to the Middle East and North Africa.

"The building blocks of democracy have to be developed patiently from the grass roots up. The process will be different in every country", the UK Prime Minister said.

Cameron described this year's events in the Middle East and North Africa as a "challenge to Iran and Syria, to give their people the freedoms they deserve".
