UK's Cameron Wants Strong EU Role

Sunday, 23 May 2010 06:52 PM EDT

LONDON - The UK will not agree to hand any more powers to Brussels, David Cameron has told German leader Angela Merkel.

After talks in Berlin, the prime minister said there was "no question" of him backing any treaty giving the EU more powers to shore up the eurozone.

Amid efforts to contain Europe's debt crisis, Mr Cameron said he would not be "drawn into" bolstering the euro.

But he stressed he wanted to play a positive role in Europe and a strong eurozone was in the UK's own interest.

On the second leg of his first European trip since becoming prime minister, Mr Cameron said he wanted a "strong and positive partnership" with Germany.

Mr Cameron's talks with Mrs Merkel in Berlin followed his meeting French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Thursday.

The trip is taking place against a backdrop of financial turmoil across Europe and calls for tighter regulation of markets to support the troubled euro - which the UK has ruled out joining.

At a press conference in the German capital, Mr Cameron said the UK would not agree to the transfer of any sovereignty from Westminster to Brussels as part of any future reforms to EU institutions aimed at protecting the single currency area from economic instability.
