    The United State is confident that its cooperating on various political and security matters with the European Union will remain strong following the outcome of Brexit referendum, US Statte Department spokesperson John Kirby told reporters on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Asked how Brexit will affect US-EU cooperation on issues like anti-Russian sanctions, Kirby said, “I can also tell you the Secretary [John Kerry] has no doubt that our cooperation with the EU on all these kinds of matters will remain strong.”

    “We are confident that US-EU partnership will also remain very vibrant, very strong across a range of not just security but also political issues,” Kirby said.

    The United States will not lose its influence in the European Union because of the decision by the United Kingdom to exit the bloc, also known as Brexit, Kirby said.

    "I don’t believe that we believe that that’s the case," Kirby stated when asked if the United States will lose influence with the European Union because of Brexit.

    The United States is confident in its partnership with the EU and does not see a diminishing of its role in Syria, US State Department spokesman John Kirby said Friday.

    “[The United States] is very confident in our partnership with the EU going forward. The EU is a member of the ISSG [International Syria Support Group], the Secretary is very focused on still trying to move the political process forward in Syria. We don’t see any diminution of their [EU] role,” Kirby said.
