Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement regarding the results of the United Kingdom’s European Union referendum:

“America’s special relationship with Great Britain endures.  This vote will not change that.

“Prime Minister David Cameron’s decision to step down is understandable.  He is a fine leader, and I know he will do all that he can to help everyone on both sides of this debate come together and move forward.  U.K. leadership is critical to global prosperity and security.”
