Prague: Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka says the British people's decision to leave the EU "is not the end of the world and above all not the end of the European Union."

Sobotka says Britain has decided to take "a different road than European integration. This decision is serious and irreversible."

 

In a reaction on Facebook, the Czech leader said Friday the EU has to work to minimise the damage to EU and Czech citizens.

"The EU has to change. Not because Britain left, but because the European project needs much stronger support from citizens."

"The EU is for us, the Czech Republic, the best possible guarantee of stability, peace and prosperity."

Sobotka said Britain will become less important and will be struggling to keep Scotland in the UK.
