Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that it would be “very bad” for the UK if the eurozone was to break up.
Speaking to the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show, he said the debt crisis in the eurozone was “a threat not just to itself, but also a threat to the UK economy, and a threat to the world economy”.
He reiterated that eurozone leaders had to take quick and decisive action.
Mr Cameron said that, as 40% of UK exports went to the eurozone, it could not shield itself from the problem.
