The geopolitical consequences of the British nation's decision to withdraw from the European Union may be very serious, European Council President Donald Tusk said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to Tusk, maintaining “the closest possible” relations with Britain is both in the interest of the United States and the European Union.

“We realize how much effort we need and how many new arguments we need to prevent political entropy and disintegration. We know that geopolitical consequences of Brexit may be very serious,” Tusk said at a press conference in Warsaw.

It is important to understand that Brexit was an incident and not the "beginning of a process," he stressed.
