    David Cameron 'battling for Britain' at crucial EU summit

    Feb 18, London: British Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "battling for Britain" as he arrived in Brussels for a crucial EU summit, local media reports.

    European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said he is "quite confident" European leaders can reach a deal with Britain over its future membership of the EU.

    Cameron aims to return with a reform package he can put to the British people in a referendum in June.

    But he faces resistance to some of his key demands from other EU leaders. "We've got some important work to do today and tomorrow and it's going to be hard, Cameron said.

    Cameron's plan to cut the amount of child benefit EU migrants can send back to their home countries would apply across the EU according to the leaked drafts - something that would be resisted by Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, BBC news reported.
