More on the EU Summit, as British Prime Minister David Cameron says he will veto any treaty to fix the European Union's debt crisis if it fails to protect the interests of Britain. Here's the details.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Thursday he would veto any treaty to fix the European Union's debt crisis if it failed to protect the interests of Britain,
His remarks were aimed at reassuring eurosceptic members of his ruling Conservative party.
Cameron is under pressure to return from an EU summit to reassure his restive right-wing. They see the current European crisis as a unique opportunity to reclaim powers from Brussels.
Speaking in London before leaving for the meeting in Brussels, Cameron said he would fight to win a "good deal for Britain."
[David Cameron, British Prime Minister]:
"If I can't get what I want, I will have no hesitation in vetoing a treaty at 27 because I am not going to go to Brussels and not stand up for our country."
Divisions over Europe tore apart the Conservative party last time it was in power in the 1990s and Cameron is painfully aware of how toxic the issue can be.
Britain is the largest of the 10 countries that are part of the EU but are not in the single currency.
