European Union leaders have unanimously agreed
on a package of measures aimed at keeping Britain in the 28-nation bloc.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said he would now recommend that Britain vote for
staying within the EU in his promised referendum. The German chancellor Angela Merkel has described
the agreement as a fair compromise that will allow Cameron to campaign for Britain to stay
in the EU. President of the European Council, Donald
Tusk, said the deal with Britain is irreversible and reiterated his position that Britain needs
Europe and Europe needs Britain. Prime Minister Cameron will outline the details
of the deal during a Cabinet meeting within the next hour.
The in/out referendum is now expected to be held on June 23rd.
