BRUSSELS: Prime Minister David Cameron said the UK supports the euro area as it tries to restore economic growth at a two-day summit that begins in Brussels today.
“We will make some progress on more plans for growth and the euro zone will make progress on some of the plans it has,” Cameron told reporters before the talks.
“I know people are frustrated that these summits keep happening and not enough decisons are made. These are hard decisions for the euro-zone countries to reach, and we should be encouraging them to go ahead.”
He also said accountability at Barclays Plc for submitting false London and euro interbank offered rates should go all the way to the top of the organization.
“I am determined we learn all the lessons from what has happened at Barclays,” Cameron said as he arrived in Brussels for a European Union summit today.
“People have to take responsibility for the actions and show how they are going to be accountable for those actions. It’s very important that goes all the way to the top of the organization.” (T03/sut)
