Poland says all must be done to stop others from leaving EU

WARSAW: Polish President Andrzej Duda said on Friday efforts should be made to prevent other countries from leaving the European Union after Britain voted to leave the bloc.


“One must do everything to prevent other countries from leaving,” Duda told reporters, adding that Poland wanted to maintain its economic and defense ties with Britain.

Duda also reiterated that his cabinet would continue to work on legislative solutions to help hundreds of thousands of Poles saddled with Swiss franc mortgages.

The franc briefly rose to its highest level against the zloty currency in a year and a half after the British vote results were published.
