Speaking to journalists on his arrival to the European Council meeting on Thursday, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the EU and Greece must find a solution to the Greek crisis, in order to end a “standoff that affects a growing British economy”.

Cameron also warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that EU sanctions on Russia ‘will not be altered’ if he does not respect the Ukraine ceasefire agreement. ‘What matters is actions on the ground, not words on a paper,” Cameron said.

EU heads of state are holding an informal meeting in Brussels on Thursday. The situation in Ukraine, the euro, the Greek bailout, and the EU’s fight against terrorism are topping the summit’s agenda.
