    The United States’ special relationship with its "indispensable ally" the United Kingdom remains unaffected after Britons voted in the majority to leave the European Union, US House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum on its membership in the European Union. Earlier Friday, it was announced that 51.9 percent of voters decided to leave the bloc.

    "I respect the decision made by the people of the United Kingdom. The UK is an indispensable ally of the United States, and that special relationship is unaffected by this vote," Ryan said in a statement.
