UK’s referendum on EU membership will not impact EU’s commitment in Armenia - Piotr Świtalski

YEREVAN, JULY 4, ARMENPRESS. Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski says the UK’s referendum on the EU membership will not impact the EU’s commitment in Armenia.

“It didn’t change anything in our regional policy, as well as the process of the bilateral dialogue. Of course, what happened in Britain is very serious, and Europe will seriously refer to it, but on our bilateral agenda it doesn’t even have an indirect effect”, Piotr Świtalski said.

He said with or without Britain, the EU maintains its leading role.

On June 23 a referendum was held on the UK’s EU membership. According to the final results, 52% (17,41 million people) voted in favor of the Brexit, and 48% (16,14 million people) voted in favor of continuing the European integration.
