WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama on Tuesday warned against international “hysteria” following last week’s vote for Britain to leave the European Union.
In an interview with National Public Radio, the US president said that he respected the results of the referendum.
However for Obama, the vote means that, “a pause button has been pressed on the project of full European integration.”
“I would not overstate it,” he added.
“There’s been a little bit of hysteria post-Brexit vote, as if somehow NATO’s gone, the trans-Atlantic alliance is dissolving, and every country is rushing off to its own corner. That’s not what’s happening.”
