US President Barack Obama said Friday he was confident that Britain would make an "orderly transition" out of the European Union, and insisted the special relationship between Washington and London would not change.
"Yesterday's vote speaks to the ongoing changes and challenges that are raised by globalization," Obama told an audience at Stanford University, one day after British voters opted to leave the bloc in a historic referendum.
After speaking to British Prime Minister David Cameron, Obama said he was "confident that the UK is committed to an orderly transition out of the EU."
