President says EU needs to reflect on way of adapting after Brexit

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades pointed out that there is a significant need of EU to reflect on its way of adapting in new conditions after UKs decision to leave the bloc.

In an intervention during the EU Med Summit that took place in Athens, the President said that the member states must make an assessment and look into the deeper ways that make EU citizens feel alienated and isolated from Brussels and its policies.

He referred to the democratic deficit and issues of transparency that citizens often come across, adding that we need to take measures to tackle the problem.
