Alexander Azadgan, a professor of strategic global management, says Britons see themselves more aligned with the US than Europe, citing their decision to leave the European Union. 

"The UK traditionally and historically sees itself closer to the United States, which is 3,000 miles away than Europe, which is 30 miles away,” he told Press TV on Friday. 

“The reason why this (Brexit) had happened in the UK and it’s going to spread to France is that at least from the UK part, the UK is counting and investing on US’s continued presence and sustainability as a superpower in the world,” Azadgan said.
