Obama to Cameron – UK should stay in Europe

In a call yesterday (before Cameron’s Europe speech was cancelled) Barack Obama told Cameron that the US:

“values a strong UK in a strong European Union”

That echoes what Philip H. Gordon – US assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian Affairs – told journalists at a recent London briefing. Gordon had said:

“We have a growing relationship with the EU as an institution, which has an increasing voice in the world, and we want to see a strong British voice in that EU.”
