The European Union must stick together more than ever and work side by side to become stronger amid the United Kingdom's decision to leave the bloc, Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.

"I think, it has become clear that we need to hold together and work side by side for Europe to become stronger….. Britain has experienced a shake-up, which hit the whole Europe," Kurz told reporters.

Kurz also noted that there were two issues on the agenda after the British referendum, namely how to build EU-UK's relations and how to tackle such long-standing challenges as migration.
