The European Union will "survive" Britain's Brexit departure and will remain strong, the bloc's foreign policy chief said on Wednesday.


“Many believed that the referendum in the UK (on leaving the European Union) was going to be the beginning of the end of the EU," Federica Mogherini said during a two-day visit to Cuba.

"I am positive on the fact that the Union is not only going to survive, but it is going to go deeper," Mogherini said.

She added: “The world needs the European Unions to stay strong, and so, this is what are we are going to do."

Britain began what is expected to be two years of difficult divorce negotiations with a formal notification by letter to the EU president in March last year.

The talks between London and Brussels are set to move on to transition arrangements, trade and security as Britain prepares to leave the EU in March next year.
