David Cameron: UK ‘will not turn its back on Europe’


David Cameron says Britain “will not and should not” turn its back on Europe as it leaves the European Union.After discussing the vote to leave with other EU leaders, he said trade and security co-operation would be vital whatever the shape of future links.
But he said immigration was a “great concern” among UK voters and squaring this with access to the EU single market would be a “huge challenge”.
Germany’s Angela Merkel said the EU must “respect the result” of the vote.
Mrs Merkel said the Brexit vote had been discussed “very intensively and deeply” at the dinner meeting with EU leaders.
