London: British Prime Minister David Cameron will deliver his long-awaited speech about relations with the European Union in the coming week, Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Sunday.

After months of speculation, Cameron had been scheduled to deliver the speech on Friday in the Netherlands, but it was postponed because of a hostage crisis involving Britons at a gas plant in Algeria.

“It will happen in the coming week. We will make an announcement about exactly when and where tomorrow,” Hague told the BBC.
