Japan's Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs Shinsuke Sugiyama labeled on Friday the results of the EU referendum in Britain "regretful."

TOKYO (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum on its membership of the European Union. Earlier on Friday, it was announced that most people voted to leave the bloc.

"If it is true than it is regretful. It will have an impact, we are thinking on tense and fast reaction," the Kyodo news agency quoted Sugiyama as saying.

Japan is concerned not only about the referendum-related growth of the national currency, the yen, which is disadvantageous to the Japanese exporting companies, but also about the future of 1,000 Japanese companies that have factories and offices in the United Kingdom.
