British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the withdrawal of the Kingdom from the European Union may not take place.
This is stated in a statement issued by the press service of the Prime Minister’s office.
According to her, this risk arises due to the fact that the Parliament has three times rejected the proposed agreement by May on the deal with the European Union.
“The Parliament has made it clear that it will prevent the exit from the EU without a deal. We now have a serious choice: to withdraw from the European Union without the agreement or not to withdraw from it altogether”, the message reads.
According to May, she remains committed to the idea of the Kingdom’s withdrawal from Association with the Treaty, but the longer the struggle for a majority in Parliament, the higher the risk that “Brexit” will not take place.
“This will mean that the “Brexit”, for which the British people voted, will leak through our fingers,” the politician points out.
Earlier, May in a letter to the head of the European Council Donald Tusk asked to postpone the date of withdrawal of the country from the EU to June 30, 2019.
