Babis Announces Support For Brexit Delay

The Czech Republic may support a delay to the date of Brexit at the upcoming European Council meeting, Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Wednesday.


“We are ready to support postponing Brexit beyond the date (March 29), Britain has to indicate specific purpose of such extension and a plan of further actions,” Babis told lawmakers at a parliament committee session.


British Prime Minister Theresa May will request a short delay to Brexit on Wednesday after her failure to get a divorce deal ratified left plans for the country’s exit from the European Union in turmoil.
