David Cameron said Britain will not return to EU.
Expressing regret and sadness over Britain’s Brexit result to leave the European Union, UK Prime Minister David Cameron said on Tuesday the Britain would not turn its back on Europe and would instead build the strongest ties it could ever had.
Cameron told a news conference after EU summit that as a democrat he had accepted the will of the people and other leaders had also respected the choice in a mood “of sadness and regret”.
“I threw myself in head, heart and soul to keep Britain in the European Union and I didn’t succeed,” he said. “And when you lose you have to say right I’ve lost that argument, I’ve lost that … debate and it’s right to hand over to someone else who will take the country forward.
“Now of course I am sad about that, but frankly I’m more concerned about Britain getting its relationship right with Europe.”
“If you want the full benefits of the single market, you’ll have to be part of every part of it,” he said.
