EU bloc may face new breakups; Tayyip Endogen

ANKARA, June 25, (APP): EU bloc may face new breakups; Tayyip Endogen

 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Britain's planned departure from the  European Union signaled the "beginning of a new era" and warned  the bloc could face new breakups.

 

"I see this decision made by the people of Britain as the  beginning of a new era for Britain and the EU," Erdogan said  during a fast-breaking dinner late on Friday, in his first  comments on the shock referendum result.

 

"Like the entire world, we expected a 'yes' result in  the referendum but it turned out like that," he said.

 

Voters in Britain decided Thursday to leave the EU,  raising questions over the future of the bloc.
