KRUEN, Germany, June 7 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama urged Britain on Sunday to stay in the European Union because of the positive influence its leadership had on the multi-country bloc and the world.

"We very much are looking forward to the United Kingdom staying a part of the European Union," Obama said during a meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron at the G7 summit in Germany. (Reporting by Jeff Mason; Editing by Paul Taylor)
