Renzi said Italy "must do its part" in reforming Europe, adding that may mean "fighting against those who are afraid of change". At a joint news conference with Cameron, Renzi said that Britain's presence in the European Union "is absolutely critical".

Renzi is preparing for Italy's turn in the six-month duty presidency of the EU beginning in July.
