Newly-elected British Prime Minister David Cameron has made his second visit to a European capital since taking office.

After Paris yesterday he was given a military reception in Berlin before talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel. While the pair spoke about issues such as Iran, Afghanistan and the environment, the dominant theme was banking regulation and economic stability at a time when the euro currency zone, of which Britain is not a member, is under stress.

Later, at a press conference, Cameron repeated what he had said in France, that Britain wants a strong and stable euro zone.

He also warned that any further treaty transferring any sort of power from London to Brussels would have to pass a British public opinion test in the form of a referendum.
