Bratislava, June 24 (TASR) – Slovak President Andrej Kiska respects the will of British people, who in Thursday’s referendum decided that their country should leave the EU, even though he feels sorry about it, Kiska’s communication department head Roman Krpelan told TASR on Friday.

“It’s a decision and the will of British people that must be respected. I’m personally sorry for this, but history hasn’t come to a standstill, it goes on,” said Kiska, according to Krpelan.

By Brexit, the EU and the idea of European integration have suffered an injury and everyone in the EU now must do significantly more for its state of health to improve. “Because the EU is a guarantee of free development, solidarity, prosperity and security also for Slovakia,” added Kiska.
