PARIS, June 29. /TASS/. Russia keeps attentively following the development of the situation with the results of a referendum on Great Britain’s secession from the European Union (Brexit), Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Wednesday following talks with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.
"We have discussed Russia-EU relations. Our counterparts informed us of the assessments of the referendum that was held in Great Britain," Lavrov said.
"We consider that referendum a purely internal affair of Britain and the EU, but are of course attentively watching the situation, as we care how it will influence Russia’s relations with the EU and Britain," he said.
Some 52% of UK citizens (17.41 million people) voted on June 23 for leaving the European Union, while 48% (16.14 million) were in favor of remaining part of the bloc. The referendum was of a nonbinding nature, but Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to take into account the will of the British people.
