Brexit to pose no change in Iran’s policy toward UK

TEHRAN, Jun. 25 (MNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry has released a statement on Fri. expressing its stance on the results of the referendum of the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union, better known as Brexit.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran as a democratic government fully respects the votes of British people on leaving the European Union and deems it consistent with the will of the majority of Britain’s people in determining their own foreign relations,” read Iran’s Foreign Ministry’s statement.

The Ministry went on to add, “the Islamic Republic of Iran has always sought expansion of relations with European countries based on mutual respect and non-interference in one another’s internal affairs, and Britain’s exit from the EU will not cause any changes in Iran’s policy regarding this country.”

The UK voted to leave the European Union after 43 years in an historic referendum on June 23, with the Leave campaign securing 52 per cent of the vote. While England voted overwhelmingly for Brexit, Scotland and Northern Ireland backed Remain. After the British public voted to exit the European Union, David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister.
