London: Outgoing British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday said that post-Brexit the UK should "try and be as close to the European Union as we can be".

In his last address to parliament, he said he would advice his successor that British trade, cooperation and security would be best served by a close relationship with Europe.

Cameron, who was given a standing ovation in the House of Commons, defended his achievements in office, saying there had been many "amazing moments" during his six years in power.

Cameron, who had campaigned for Britain to remain a part of the economic bloc, had announced he will be stepping down for a new PM to handle the Brexit negotiations.

He began his day with his weekly Prime Minister's Questions in the House of Commons for the 182nd and final time as PM, at the end of which he was bid farewell by British MPs from across party lines with a round of applause.

He admitted he will miss "the roar of the crowd" and the "barbs from the Opposition" as he moves on from office. "But I will be willing all ofyou on," he said to fellow MPs in his parting words.

"You can achieve a lot of things in politics...and that in the end, the public service, the national interest, that is what it's all about. Nothing is really impossible if you put your mind to it. After all, as I once said: 'I was the future once'," said Cameron, who has said he intends to carry on as a backbench Conservative party MP for Witney in Oxfordshire.

Cameron, 49, has been Prime Minister of Britain for six years and 62 days since he took charge in 2010.

"I came into Downing Street to confront our problems as a country and lead people through difficult decisions so that together we could reach better times. As I leave today, I hope that people will see a stronger country, a thriving economy, and more chances to get on in life," he told The Daily Telegraph in one of his farewell interviews.

The Camerons will now move into a temporary rental accommodation in central London as their own home in Notting Hill area of the city is still occupied by tenants.

Theresa May, 59, is set to take charge as new Prime Minister today to begin the work of taking the UK out of the European Union (EU).
