EU Nations Grapple With Another Brexit Delay
Reuters reports some European Union nations will accept UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s request for another delay to Brexit.
Germany has agreed, while French President Emmanuel Macron has expressed concerns moving forward.
The United Kingdom was originally scheduled to leave the EU a week ago, and May has already been granted one delay.
May has begun crisis talks with the opposition Labour Party in hopes of getting a Brexit deal passed ahead of the currently scheduled April 12 exit date.
May is now asking the bloc for a delay until June 30.
A French official said that “in the scenario of an extended delay, one year would seem too long for us”.
