LYMEC has listened to the voices of British people and is sadden by the news that a majority of the British voters have decided to leave the European Union. No matter how much we believe this decision will weaken both the EU and the UK, we respect the choice of the British people and now turn our focus to the exit negotiations.

While we hope that the EU will maintain a strong relationship and cooperation with the United Kingdom, leaving the EU comes at a price. The United Kingdom should not be given preferential treatment over other countries bordering the EU.

LYMEC moreover urges the EU to use the Brexit as a new beginning. The decision by the British voters serve as a wake up call for all EU institutions, but especially the Council, which in our view too often is the barrier for sustainable solutions to pan European issues such as the refugee crises, youth unemployment and climate change.

The Europeans want an EU that provides solutions on the great challenges. LYMEC calls upon the liberal heads of state of the European member states to lead this positive change in the European Council.
