Britain has chosen the path of instability with its Leave vote on the Brexit question, says Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the head of the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers.
"We in the EU must make another choice," said the Dutch finance minister, speaking in The Hague. "Instability is the last thing that we here in Europe and the eurozone need."
Britain's decision would not change anything within the eurozone, he adds, saying that the group was "determined to continue on its path towards economic recovery."
Dijsselbloem expects the markets and stock exchanges to quickly stabilize, adding that a panic in Europe is out of the question.
