MORE NEWS:



U.S. Department of the Treasury UK Referendum to leave the European Union:

WASHINGTON – The people of the United Kingdom have spoken and we respect their decision. We will work closely with both London and Brussels and our international partners to ensure continued economic stability, security, and prosperity in Europe and beyond.

We continue to monitor developments in financial markets. We have been in regular contact in recent weeks with my counterparts and financial market participants in the UK, EU and globally and we are continuing to consult closely. The UK and other policymakers have the tools necessary to support financial stability, which is key to economic growth.

ALSO:

The Federal Reserve is carefully monitoring developments in global financial markets, in cooperation with other central banks, following the results of the U.K. referendum on membership in the European Union. The Federal Reserve is prepared to provide dollar liquidity through its existing swap lines with central banks, as necessary, to address pressures in global funding markets, which could have adverse implications for the U.S. economy.

ALSO:

U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) today released the following statement on the United Kingdom’s (UK) decision to leave the European Union (EU):

“The people of the United Kingdom have spoken today and I respect their decision to leave the European Union. The UK is one of our oldest and most important allies, and our special relationship will not be impacted by this decision. It is critical that the Obama Administration – and the next – work to ensure there is no disruption in the close partnership we enjoy with the UK."
