„If the EU does not reform, it does not meet the interests of UK – said British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. – If our EU partners tell us that they are not ready for change and negotiations, it is clear what will be the reaction of the british voters at the forthcoming referendum. „
The current Prime Minister David Cameron announced that, if he stays in the office after the general elections in 2015, in 2017 the government will hold a referendum on the relations between the UK and the EU.
„We need to conduct more in-depth conversations and make a major change in the EU to allow the UK „word“ to be heard – said Hammond. – Then we will turn to the British people. My task is to create conditions for negotiate an amendment of the EU.
„If theres is no changes in the governance of the EU , such a union is not necessary fo british people“ – said the Minister.
