LONDON, June 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The UK wants to avoid deeper integration within the European Union, Prime Minister David Cameron said in an article published on the Daily Telegraph website on June 29.
Despite strong opposition from the UK, former Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Jean Claude Juncker has been elected President of the European Commission.
“Jean-Claude Juncker has been nominated as the next president of the European Commission, and we will now work with him,” Cameron wrote.
“I do not oppose further integration within the eurozone: I think it is inevitable. Eurozone members must make those decisions. But I know the British people want no part of it, want to avoid deeper integration, and want our country properly protected from the impacts on the single market of any further integration that the eurozone undertakes,” the prime minister continued.
“I will keep on standing up for our principles, fighting for Britain’s interests, fighting with all I have to reform the EU over the next few years. And at the end of 2017, it will not be me, our Parliament, or Brussels that decides on Britain’s future in the European Union – it will be the British people,” Cameron said.
Prime Minister Cameron has repeatedly promised he will hold a national referendum on staying in the EU by the end of 2017 if he is re-elected.
