The British government sent an official request to the EU to postpone the country’s withdrawal from the community until June 30. This was stated on Wednesday, speaking in Parliament by the Prime Minister of the Kingdom Theresa May.
“Today I wrote to the head of the European Council Donald Tusk, informing him that the UK is asking for a delay “Brexit” until June 30,” — said the head of government. In the letter, she also announced her intention to put forward new proposals to protect the domestic market of Britain in the light of “Brexit”.
The head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said that the EU has received a request from the UK to postpone Brexit, originally scheduled on March 29. He had a telephone conversation with May, in which she conveyed the request.
A diplomatic source in Brussels said that an official letter with a British request was given to Tusk.
