The European Union stresses that it does not intend to conduct further negotiations
British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday asked the European Union to postpone her country’s exit from the bloc for 3 months – until June 30.
Previously «Brexit» was set for March 29, but the parliament has not yet been able to agree on the terms and conditions for leaving the EU. Disputes centered on the conditions for crossing the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as on trade issues.
To defer «Brexit» the consent of the remaining 27 EU members, who will meet in Brussels on Thursday, is required. Talks on Britain’s withdrawal from the bloc have been going on for more than two years.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the EU is not open to further negotiations and is unlikely to decide this week on whether to grant the UK an extension.
House of Commons firmly rejects terms agreed by May and EU «Brexit», and also blocked the idea of leaving the block without an agreement
Juncker said in an interview with German radio station Deutschlandfunk that May needs to clarify the UK’s plans to get a postponement..
«There will be no new negotiations, as well as additional guarantees in addition to those additional guarantees that we have already provided», – he stressed.
