British Prime Minister David Cameron visited Denmark on Friday to seek support for keeping Britain in the European Union.

EU members will discuss British membership later in February, while a referendum regarding the matter will take place this June.

Cameron says several conditions need to be met to secure a vote in a favor of keeping Britain in the EU.

Among them are more powers for national parliaments and a pact to allow Britain to delay paying benefits to foreign EU citizens.

"The things that I've said that are absolutely crucial are that we end the idea of something for nothing, that people can come to Britain and get instant access to our in work welfare system. That's got to change and that will change. I've also said there should be a four year period and that is very important. "

Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen says he hopes Britain will stay in the EU.

David Cameron's visit to Denmark followed an earlier meeting in Poland, where he reiterated his support for British membership in the EU.
