BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – The center-right nationalist party headed by Bart De Wever stands for the peaceful and gradual secession of the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders from Belgium.
"[David] Cameron’s vision is beneficial not only for the United Kingdom, but for the whole European Union, and, consequently, for Flanders," De Wever stated in a statement.
According to him, solutions proposed by the European Union too often bring more problems instead of the required relief.
The remarks come a day after Cameron sent European Council President Donald Tusk a letter laying out his EU reform requirements, formally launching a campaign to renegotiate Britain’s EU membership.
Among the demands voiced by the UK prime minister was the exemption of London from the commitment to "ever-closer union," as well as protection from Eurozone integration, enabling EU countries to control migration and introduction of improvements in competitiveness.
Britain’s exit from the European Union – the so-called Brexit – will be voted on in a referendum by the end of 2017, as promised by Cameron during the pre-election campaign in spring.
