London, Feb 20 (IBNS): UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Saturday said his country will vote on whether to remain in the European Union on June 23.

"On June 23rd, you will decide if Britain is stronger, safer and better off in a reformed EU," the PM tweeted.

Following a Cabinet meeting on Britain's new settlement with the European Union, Cameron said: "And the Cabinet agreed that the government’s position will be to recommend that Britain remains in a reformed European Union. Now I want to speak directly to the British people to explain why.We are approaching one of the biggest decisions this country will face in our lifetimes.Whether to remain in a reformed European Union – or to leave.This choice goes to the heart of the kind of country we want to be. And the future that we want for our children."

"I am the first to say that there are still many ways in which Europe needs to improve – and that the task of reforming Europe does not end with yesterday’s agreement.And I will never say that our country couldn’t survive outside Europe," he said.

He said Britain can achieve 'great things'.

"I believe Britain will be stronger in a reformed Europe because we can play a leading role in one of the world’s largest organisations from within, helping to make the big decisions on trade and security that determine our future.And I believe we will be better off in a reformed Europe because British businesses will have full access to the free trade single market, bringing jobs, investment and lower prices.Let me be clear. Leaving Europe would threaten our economic and our national security," Cameron said.
