Topic: German lawmaker casts doubt on UK's push to change EU treaties


A German lawmaker who is close to Chancellor Angela Merkel cast doubt on Britain's plan to change European Union treaties before the country holds a referendum on its EU membership. Norbert Roettgen, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in the German Bundestag, also said the vote was more about a split within British Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservative Party than about solving problems in the EU. "I can't see treaty change as a realistic option within the course of two years," Roettgen told reporters at a media briefing on Monday at the residence of the German ambassador in London.
