Outgoing British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Saturday he will hold a parliamentary vote for July 18 to decide on the renewal of Britain's nuclear deterrent.

He defended not leaving the decision to his successor, saying replacing the ageing fleet of four submarines which carry nuclear warheads needed to be put "beyond doubt."


Speaking at a NATO summit in Warsaw, Cameron also said U.S. President Barack Obama told him Britain would continue to be a reliable, strong ally outside the European Union.
