White House: Britain is stronger by being part of the EU

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Wednesday that the United States believes Britain is stronger by being a part of the European Union and the EU is stronger as a result of Britain’s membership.

White House spokesman Jay Carney made the comments at a press briefing after British Prime Minister David Cameron promised Britons a vote on whether the country should stay in the EU or leave.
