The British Ambassador to Israel David Quarrey said on Friday the United Kingdom will continue to be a friend to Israel and stand by its side, even after Britain leaves the European Union.


“We have been a friend of Israel in the EU, we’ll be a friend of Israel outside the EU, but Israel’s relations with the EU in the future will have to be determined without Britain at the table,” he said in an interview with Israel’s Channel 2.


“I don’t think that things will change very significantly between the UK and Israel. I don’t see any likely change in the desire on our part for a strong relationship with Israel based on trade, investment, security, cooperation, technology and science.”


“A decision has been made and there is no going back,” said Quarrey, adding that the role of the British government now was to implement the wishes of the British people.


On Thursday, 52 per cent of British voters voted in favour of leaving the European Union.
