VIENNA, June 28. /TASS/. It is too early to speak about implications of the UK’s potential exit from the European Union (EU) for Russia-EU dialogue, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexei Meshkov said Tuesday.
"Time will show how the situation regarding the UK and its future contacts with the EU member-states will unfold, but today’s agenda is different," he said, adding that the whole process of the country’s exit from the European Union will take a long time.
According to Meshkov, Russia is "interested in (global) stability and stable growth for the sake of its own economy."
At the referendum on June 23, 51.9% of Britons voted in favor of Brexit and another 48.1% chose to remain in the European Union.
The referendum’s outcome is a recommendation. Theoretically, the results may be submitted to parliament for consideration. The legislators may either agree with the popular opinion or make the opposite decision. Also, calling another referendum is a possibility. Prime Minister David Cameron has promised to act on the will of the British people, who said they would like to leave the EU.
