Cameron says Britain shouldn't emulate Norway, outside EU

LONDON (AP) -- British Prime Minister David Cameron is warning compatriots who want to leave the European Union that a semi-detached relationship with the bloc might leave Britain paying just as much but having less power.

Some advocates of withdrawal say Britain would be better off like Norway, outside the EU but with a free-trade agreement.

Cameron said Wednesday that Norway still has to pay the EU and abide by its rules, but has "no seat at the table" in decision-making.

Cameron is meeting leaders of several northern European nations at a gathering in Reykjavik, Iceland. His office says he will discuss his goal of a looser relationship between Britain and the EU.

Britain is due to hold a referendum on whether to remain in the EU by the end of 2017.
