Does anybody knows how can I delete an element that is the next following-sibling of the context node?
XSLT's model is one of selectively copying data from the source to the result, so it's not clear what you mean by "delete". The node won't be copied unless you ask for it to be copied, and if you don't want it to appear in the output then you must find the code that was copying it and change it.
For example: [XML] <a href="anything">link</a><br/>
[XSL] <xsl:template match="//a[name(following-sibling::*)='br']">
[The XML Output should be] <a href="anything">link</a>
Alternatively, ensure that your stylesheet doesn't do an apply-templates on this element in the first place.
