WASHINGTON (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.
"We could see some negative impact for the [Mercosur-EU trade] negotiation process. But on the other hand we really trust that the European Commission and the European Union in general will keep pushing this negotiation process forward. I don’t foresee any difficulties when it comes to the bilateral trade of Brazil and UK," Daniel Marteleto Godinho said, answering a question about future of trade cooperation between Brasilia and London following Brexit.
Brazil does not feel any pressure from its Western partners in respect to the business it conducts with Russia, Brazil's secretary for foreign trade told Sputnik.
"Not at all," Daniel Marteleto Godinho said.
