David Cameron: 'Britain still major world player'

Prime Minister David Cameron has said he rejects any argument that Britain is "in decline" internationally.

During his first annual foreign policy speech at London's Guildhall, he said world leaders "do not see Britain shifting apologetically off the world stage".

He said relative economic growth between Britain and fast-growing economies such as China and India was not a "zero-sum game" and that Britain is still a 'master of its own destiny'.
