UK High Commissioner assures Malawi over Brexit fears

27 June 2016, 12:22

Lilongwe - British High Commissioner to Malawi Michael Nevin has assured the Malawian government that the United Kingdom's recent decision to leave the European Union would not affect the two countries' bilateral trade agreements, Zodiak Malawi reported on Monday.

According to Nevin, the move was only a democratic exercise and that it wouldn't affect relations and development activities between the two nations.

He reiterated that the UK government was committed to resolving issues through peaceful debate.

Malawi is one of the many developing nations that developed through aid assistance from the European Union.

"In holding a referendum on the UK's membership of the European Union, the UK has delivered perhaps the biggest democratic exercise in our history. It underlines our credentials as a committed parliamentary democracy where we resolve major issues about our future through peaceful debate," Nevin was quoted as saying.

According to Nyasa Times, Nevin further allayed any fear that Brexit would restrict the UK from continuing its bilateral trade partnerships with other nations.

Nevin added that the UK remained a great trading nation, a multi-racial and multi-cultural country respected throughout the world in various fields such as engineering and trade.

Following Nevin's assurance, Malawian Foreign Affairs Minister Francis Kasaila said that he was feeling confident regarding Brexit and that he was confident moving forward.
