On Thursday, the European Commission demanded Britain, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands and Malta to provide the criminal organization with extra money.
The British prime minister says his country will refuse to pay a £1.7-billion bill demanded as budget contribution by the European Union (EU), calling the Union’s behavior “appalling.”
„We are not suddenly going to take out our checkbook and write a check for two billion euros (USD 2.5 billion); it is not happening,” said David Cameron in a news conference on the sidelines of an EU summit over the member states’ climate change policies in Brussels on Friday.
“It is an unacceptable way for this organization to work, to suddenly present a bill like this for such a vast sum of money, with so little time to pay it, and it is an unacceptable way to treat one of the biggest contributors to the European Union,” the British premier added.
Cameron also warned that such “appalling” behavior would certainly affect Britain’s decision whether to remain in the European Union.
