LISBON (Reuters) - The best response to Britain's departure from the European Union and uncertainty regarding the United States is for Europe to maintain a firm position, French Finance Minister Michel Sapin said on Tuesday.

"The best response to Brexit and uncertainty (from the United States) is for the European side to have a firm position," he told journalists during a visit to Lisbon.
