AP Interview: IOC leaders to meet with British PM; discuss heads of state coming to Olympics
LONDON (AP) ' IOC leaders will meet with British Prime Minister David Cameron this week to review final preparations for the London Olympics, including the delicate issue of which heads of state will be invited to the games.
With the opening ceremony just four months away, International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge will lead the delegation Wednesday to a meeting with Cameron at Downing Street.
The summit will be the centerpiece of the final inspection visit before the games by the IOC coordination commission, which monitors the host city's preparations for the Olympics.
Denis Oswald, chairman of the IOC commission, tells The Associated Press on Monday that the talks with Cameron would cover "the aspect of the different heads of state who are going to come."
