    US Secretary of State John Kerry said that Washington is evaluating the impact of Brexit on TTIP and trade in general.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US authorities are studying the impact of the United Kingdom’s decision to exit the European Union on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement and trade as a whole, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday.

    "We are currently evaluating the impact of this decision that has been made, which is not yet implemented, on TTIP and trade in general," Kerry stated in a joint press conference with the UK Foreign Minister Philip Hammond in London.
