Cameron Says Indonesia’s Democracy Offers Hope to Muslim World

British Prime Minister David Cameron praised Indonesia’s transition to democracy and said its success in overcoming authoritarian rule and religious extremism should guide the way for other Muslim nations seeking change.

Cameron told students at Al Azhar University in Jakarta today that Indonesia has demonstrated it’s possible to develop democracy and a modern economy without compromising security or the ability to practice their religion, according to remarks released by his office. It’s the third day of a diplomatic and trade tour of Asia by the British premier.
