On Thursday, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union, with over 50 percent of the UK public voting in support of Brexit. Following the vote, UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation in October.
"A few days ago, a referendum on UK exit from the European Union was held. Its impact on the international financial markets is already felt, and the uncertainly factors are also increasing in the global economy," Li Keqiang said at the annual summit of the World Economic Forum in Tianjin.
"We want to see a single, stable European Union, and we also want to see a stable and prosperous UK. In the context of globalization, no country can remove itself from the world economy and talk only about its own development, so it is necessary to move forward hand in hand," Li Keqiang said.
China has expressed increasing concerns over Brexit results, as London remains a key hub for Chinese renminbi-denominated trade activity, accounting for over half of all transactions outside of China, according to the UK government data.
