LONDON, June 27. /TASS/. The result of the United Kingdom’s referendum on the European Union membership must be respected, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.
"I am clear and the Cabinet agreed this morning that the decision must be accepted and the process of implementing the decision in the best possible way must now begin," Cameron told the parliament five days after 52% of UK citizens ((17.41 million people) voted for leaving the EU.
He urged the parliament to make no attempts to block the people’s decision to leave the EU.
Cameron also said "the British government will not be triggering Article 50 at this stage."
Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty outlines how an EU country might voluntarily leave the bloc and specifies that the leaving country should notify the European Council of its intention, negotiate a deal on its withdrawal and establish legal grounds for a future relationship with the European Union.
