A break-up of the eurozone would risk harming Britain’s economy, prime minister David Cameron has warned.
“The eurozone is a threat not just to itself but also a threat to the British economy and a threat to the worldwide economy”, Mr Cameron told reporters.
The prime minister called for emergency measures to strengthen Europe’s banks, and reiterated the need for unity in the eurozone.
He said that Britain must remain part of the European Union, and urged eurozone leaders to work together to “deal with the problems of debts decisively”.
This came as European stock markets again fell heavily on Friday because of concerns about the eurozone debt crisis.
