    The decision of the United Kingdom to exit the European Union did not undermine NATO, US Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes said in a briefing on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On June 23, a nationwide referendum was held in the United Kingdom, in which 51.9 percent of voters supported the country withdrawing from the European Union. After the official results were revealed, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who had led the Remain campaign, said he would resign in October.

    “There is absolutely no impact on NATO from Brexit," Rhodes stated. "We don’t see any change in the solidarity in the alliance."

    Earlier, US President Barack Obama said that the United Kingdom will remain close to the United States after Brexit, and will remain one of the strongest NATO member states.
