David Cameron has called on his EU counterparts to allow the UK to stop paying benefits to EU migrants. The benefits relate to an income supplement for low-wage employees. The UK will vote whether or not to stay in the EU before the end of 2017.
Germany's Federal Minister for Economic Affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, urges slashing benefit payments for children of EU migrants not living in Germany. But EU regulations favor the status quo.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he is still optimistic of securing a deal in February on reforming the European Union (EU). Germany has said the UK's exit from the bloc would be a "disaster."
At the end of an EU summit, British Prime Minister David Cameron has said he is confident of winning reforms to the UK's relationship with Europe in the coming year. However, his proposals face some resistance.
EU Council President Tusk has warned that some of the reforms demanded by British Prime Minister Cameron could prove unacceptable. Cameron is expected to press for concessions in order to avoid so-called "Brexit."
