Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU) will greatly weaken the bloc, European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic said here on Sunday.
“If a country like Britain exits, it must be perceived by the outside world as weakening the Union and as a demonstration of the crisis that the EU is undergoing,” said Sefcovic, adding the EU has been considered a perfect form of integration and a model tool to maintain peace on a continent that was troubled by a war every few decades.
Sefcovic said the British referendum played into the hands of populists and Eurosceptics.
“There is a need to explain and defend the benefits and decisions of the Union in a more convincing manner, and also at the national level,” stated Sefcovic.
