Cameron confident Brexit deal
13 Feb 2016 10:10
British Prime Minister David Cameron expressed confidence that a deal could be reached allowing Britain to remain in the European Union and avoid a so-called "Brexit".
-
"When it comes to the question of Britain's place in Europe, I have always been confident that together we can secure the reforms that address Britain's concerns and also work for Europe as a whole," Mr Cameron told a banquet in the German city of Hamburg, where he was guest of honour alongside Chancellor Angela Merkel.
-
Britain has "always been a country that reaches out," Cameron told guests of Hamburg's historic "Matthiae-Mahl" banquet in the ornate town hall.
-
"And I never want us to pull up the drawbridge and retreat from the world.
-
"So when it comes to the question of Britain's future in Europe, my aim is clear: I want to keep Britain inside a reformed European Union," Mr Cameron said.
-
"If by working together we can achieve these changes, then I will unequivocally recommend that Britain stays in a reformed European Union on these new terms."
-
Mr Cameron is engaged in an intensive round of high-stakes diplomacy aimed at renegotiating the terms of Britain's EU membership before holding an in-out referendum.
-
He must convince his 27 fellow EU leaders to back the controversial reform proposals at a leaders' summit in Brussels on February 18-19.
