Cameron: Strong euro is good, but UK won't join


David Cameron, on his first foreign trip as prime minister, repeated that the UK would not join the euro.

At a news conference in Paris, he listened to French President Nicolas Sarkozy make an impassioned defence of the euro, saying that "the English" were needed in Europe.

David Cameron confirmed his government would honour commitments made by the previous Labour government, and said a strong European currency was in everyone's interests.
