“This is a sad day today. We have lost a lot. And I also believe that the UK has lost a lot,” said Asselborn. It is important that the EU make serious with one-time decisions: “Otherwise, it may happen that many people in other countries of the European Union have similar thoughts as in the UK – and we must prevent it.”
