The prime minster is back in Brussels, hoping to gain support for his EU reform demands ahead of a two day summit of EU leaders, beginning on Thursday.
The EU Council President said on Monday that he believed the future of the EU is at risk of major change;
“This is a critical moment. It is high time we started listening to each other’s arguments more than to our own. It is natural in negotiations that positions harden, as we get closer to crunch time but the risk of break-up is real because this process is indeed very fragile. Handle with care. What is broken cannot be mended.”
Cameron and the president of the European council, Martin Schulz, are in talks this morning hoping to shape the UK’s deals before European leaders meet to discuss later this week.
The prime minister has promised a referendum by the end of 2017.
