British Prime Minister David Cameron leaves at a EU Budget summit at the European Council building for a break in Brussels on Friday, Feb. 8, 2013.

The leaders of the 27 nations inched toward a compromise Friday that would leave their common budget with a real-term cut for the first time in the EU’s history.
