MOSCOW (Sputnik) The project of the full European integration has been put on pause following the Brexit vote, in which the British citizens decided that their country should leave the European Union, US President Barack Obama said.

"The best way to think about this is that a pause button has been pressed on the project of the full European integration. I would not overstate it," Obama told the NPR media network in an interview published Tuesday.

On June 23, 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, supported Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.

A number of European and other world leaders, including Obama, have expressed regret over the British nation’s decision.
