President Nicolas Sarkozy and Prime Minister David Cameron met in Paris when the two discussed the eurozone debt crisis.
‘Chilling’ is how David Cameron described the effect of the eurozone problems on Britain’s economy. Talk of treaty changes earlier on Friday led Britain’s PM to stress if that happened the changes would have to be in his country’s interests.
“When you look at the crisis in the eurozone, the real need there is for the institutions of the eurozone to get behind the currency, to convince the markets that they have the firepower to do that. The second fundamental thing is real competitiveness throughout the eurozone so the eurozone works properly. Now neither of those things actually require a treaty change but I’m very clear, if there is treaty change, then I will make sure that we further protect and enhance Britain’s interest,” he said.
