LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday he would accept a new European Union treaty intended to prop up the euro zone only if it does not impinge on British interests.

In an opinion piece in the Times newspaper Cameron said that if euro zone countries want to use the "institutions of Europe" to rescue the single currency, they will have to support a number of British safeguards in return.

"The most important British interest right now is to sort out the problem in the eurozone that is having the chilling effect on our economy," he said.
