MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. Brexit will not influence the relations between Moscow and Brussels but a new international treaty framework will have to be established with the United Kingdom, Russian Permanent Representative to the European Union Vladimir Chizhov said on Monday.
"I believe relations between Russia and the European Union will not require cardinal changes," Chizhov said.
At the same time, bilateral or parallel agreements similar to the ones between Russia and the United States will have to be concluded with the United Kingdom, the diplomat added.
According to the senior diplomat, supporters of withdrawing from the European Union do not prevail in any EU member country for now.
"After the shock that the European Union experienced (after UK voted to leave at the referendum on June 23), the remaining 27 countries have a natural desire to come together and prevent further disintegration of EU," Chizhov said during the Moscow-Brussels video bridge.
The ambassador noted that he is talking about political "mainstream", not about those "whose position and activities were in the opposite direction, aimed at the withdrawal of some countries from EU." "Such forces exist but they do not make up a majority today in any country of the European Union," Chizhov concluded.
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.
