Croatian president says European project won't stop after Brexit

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said in Ljubljana on Friday that she was disappointed by the outcome of the Brexit referendum, but stressed that the European project carried on.

"We are all disappointed, but the European project won't stop and it should carry on," she told reporters after talks with Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar on bilateral issues and European policy.

She said the Britons' decision to leave the European Union should be accepted and that it would not have immediate direct effects because London and Brussels would now negotiate the exit procedure and future relations.
