    Britain Says 'Cheerio' to EU (463)

    Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski and his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier discussed on Sunday what comes next for the European Union after UK’s decision to quit the bloc, the Polish ministry said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The United Kingdom voted on Thursday to leave the European Union, prompting calls for more EU reforms across the remaining member states. Waszczykowski described UK’s decision as a "serious trouble" for Europe.

    "The main topic of talks between the heads of Polish and German diplomacy was the result of Thursday’s referendum in Britain," the Polish foreign ministry said, adding they exchanged opinions on "additional scenarios of how the EU could function."

    Waszczykowski and Steinmeier are due in the Czech capital of Prague on Monday for talks among Visegrad countries – the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary – that will be dominated by Brexit.
