Europe must be realistic about the possibility that Britain will exit the European Union, Slovakia’s Prime Minister Robert Fico said on Thursday, citing recent opinion polls that show a majority of Britons supporting such a move.

Fico told reporters he had discussed possible scenarios for after the June 23 referendum with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, noting that a broader discussion about Europe’s future would be needed, regardless of how the vote came out.

Both Fico and Merkel said they hoped Britain voted to stay in the bloc. Merkel said it was clear that Britain would have a different status if it left the union, and that it then would be treated as an outsider to the domestic EU market.
