The Kremlin keeps a close watch on Brexit-related processes, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Friday, adding he was not ready yet to offer any comment regarding British Prime Minister Theresa May’s resignation plans.
"No, I’m not ready to say anything at this point," he acknowledged, when asked if there had been any response to May’s forthcoming resignation. "Certainly, we keep a close watch on the Brexit-related processes in general, which inevitably affect Britain and the situation in the European Union”, Tass quoted Dmitry Peskov as saying.
"We are closely monitoring this, in the first place, because the European Union is our main trading and economic partner. For this reason we are naturally interested in a predictable, stable and developing partner," Peskov explained.
About the Kremlin’s attitude to May’s role in Moscow-London relations, Peskov said: "Regrettably, I cannot recall offhand any landmarks that might somehow illustrate a contribution to the development of bilateral relations between Russia and Britain. It is rather the other way round - May’s premiership was a very complicated period in our bilateral relations."
