PM Cameron says Brexit vote must be accepted, timing up to Britain

Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain will not turn its back on Europe but that the UK's decision to leave the European Union must be accepted.

LONDON (REUTERS) - Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday (June 27) Britain's vote to leave the European Unions must be respected and that the decision on when to trigger the formal "Article 50" exit process was a decision for "Britain alone".

"There can be no doubt about the result... I am clear, and the cabinet agreed this morning, that the decision must be accepted," Cameron told Parliament.

"The British government will not be triggering Article 50 at this stage... this is our sovereign decision and it will be for Britain, and Britain alone, to take."
