The Belgian prime minister called for an EU summit in July to define priorities and shape future following Britain's vote to leave the bloc.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel called on Friday to hold a summit in July to define EU commitment among the bloc's member states.

"I call for a conclave to reaffirm our commitment in July. We have to define our priorities and set out a new future for Europe," Michel said as quoted by The Telegraph newspaper.

His comments come as earlier in the day the United Kingdom voted for the country's exit from the European Union, with 51.9 percent supporting the move.
