BEIJING/TIANJIN, China (Reuters) - China's finance minister and leading economists on Sunday voiced concerns about Britain's vote to leave the European Union, with the policymaker saying it has heightened market uncertainty, though some expect a limited impact on the Chinese economy. The "Brexit" decision "will cast a shadow over the global economy... The repercussions and fallout will emerge in the next five to 10 years," said Lou Jiwei, China's Minister of Finance, at the first annual meeting of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in Beijing. "The knee-jerk reaction from the market is probably a bit excessive and needs to calm down and take an objective view." Stock markets around the world plunged in the wake of the referendum while the Sterling's value also plummeted.

"It is a historic day for the country," Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela said on Saturday.

FILE- In this Friday, June 26, 2015 file photo, a wounded man is helped moments after a deadly explosion claimed by the Islamic State group during Friday prayers at the Imam Sadiq Mosque in Kuwait City. A Kuwaiti mosque hit by an Islamic State suicide bomber a year ago has reopened, though people still fear sectarianism and future attacks. That’s in part due to the fact that regional tensions between Sunni and Shiite Muslims still ripple through the tiny, oil-rich Kuwait. (AP Photo, File)KUWAIT CITY (AP) — The wood paneling bearing Quranic verses gleams inside the Imam Sadiq Mosque and the carpeting is soft underfoot for worshippers who come to pray in what is one of Kuwait's oldest Shiite mosques — and the site of the country's worst militant attack in modern history.
