UK Prime Minister David Cameron has once again raised concerns over the free movement of people in the EU, at the Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius.

Britain is planning to restrict access to welfare benefits for new immigrants from Romania and Bulgaria once labor restrictions are lifted in January, reminds the BBC.

Before the Summit in Vilnius, France and Germany also expressed support for David Cameron's anti-"benefit tourism" measures.

London's proposed measures drew significant criticism from the European Commission. The EU's Employment Commissioner called Britain's immigration fears "hysterical".
