Giving More Time For Brexit
According to CNN, The European Union said Thursday it was ready to extend the length of the transition period designed to smooth the UK's exit from the 28-nation bloc next year.
The original plan is for a 21-month period starting March 30, 2019, as soon as the UK has left.
But with the two sides failing to come to an agreement on how the new relationship will work, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has proposed extending this arrangement "for a few months."
The President of the EU's intergovernmental body, Donald Tusk, said the bloc's leaders had not discussed the period of transition at the meeting, but said it was unlikely to be opposed.
