Brexit what it really means for security policy. the author visits British Ministry of Defence

****** I just met with the minister of reserve of the British Ministry of Defence in London. My personal impression is not older than 10 hours. So this is live and real. 

The main point is that Great Britian is related to Europe by the means of security politics via NATO not via the EU. What does that mean ? It means that not really much will change because the British prevented parallel structures between EU and NATO. In fact Germany will be a more important future partner of the UK next to France and the USA. The UK mostly relies on  NATO ties, not EU ties. We can be sure to be reliable partners in the future.
Therefore Brexit is not fundamentel critical for our relation.***** Uwe Voigt
