EU agrees to extend “Brexit”

The European Union will postpone the process of entering the UK until February if Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not be able to make a deal this week. The Times reported, citing its sources.

It is noted that Britain will be able to leave before February (1 or 15 of each month) if the deal is approved before the end of the delay. A final decision in the Alliance will not be made until the arrangements are made very clear in the British Parliament this week. In the event of more serious difficulties for Johnson, such as the decision to hold a second referendum, the delay could last until June.

On October 19, the UK Parliament voted to ask the EU for a new delay on “Brexit.” However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he was not going to postpone the exit from the EU, scheduled for October 31.

Britain was due to leave the EU on March 29, but Parliament repeatedly rejected the proposal of then Prime Minister Theresa may on the terms of the withdrawal agreement. London received a reprieve from Brussels until April 12, and then until October 31. The parties had to work out a mutually acceptable Treaty that would smooth the consequences of “Brexit.”
