David Cameron willing to use UK veto to block Iceland EU entry

eu1David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, told parliament that Iceland owes the UK GBP 2.3 billion and that the British government will not hesitate to use Iceland’s EU accession talks as a tool to ensure Britain gets its money back.

His comments came in a report to the House of Commons about the European Council of national leaders’ meeting on 17th June where Iceland’s accession talks were formally accepted.

Cameron said, “This country should be a good friend to Iceland and a strong supporter of continued EU enlargement.” But Britain must get its money back, he said.
