Merkel: Brexit Vote is Irreversible

Brussels , – Britain’s decision to leave the European Union is irreversible, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said following summit talks in Brussels with British Prime Minister David Cameron and the bloc’s other leaders.

“I see no way to reverse that,” Merkel said of the referendum outcome, while adding that the issue was not discussed with Cameron.

“This is not the hour for wishful thinking,” she said, noting, “the referendum stands as a reality.” “The atmosphere was serious, amicable and borne by the awareness that this is more of a sad event, but that it is a reality,” Merkel said of the leaders’ talks, noting that consequences now need to be drawn.
