French President Emmanuel Macron said the UK leaving the EU was a warning sign for Europe in a televised speech in Paris on Friday.
«I remember how much the 2016 campaign was been founded on lies, exaggerations, on simplifications, on checks that they promised but that will never arrive. Here, we also have to, in each instance, remember what lies can lead our democracies to. But for our sake, we... Еще have to very concretely learn the lessons,» said Macron.
The French President said he was committed to build up a partnership between the UK and the European Union that would be 'as solid and as enduring as possible.'
The speech came just hours before the UK starts its 11-month transition period of Brexit on Friday.
