The European Council President Donald Tusk has said today that the short extension of the deal would not be enough. He is then favour of a longer Brexit, maybe up to a year or beyond.
The UK Prime Minister Theresa May has today met several EU leaders. She was in Germany and met the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, which pointed that the extension might be long enough, but also so that the option of leaving earlier is possible if the deal is reached. PM May is having a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron tonight.
The EU leaders are having their summit tomorrow on Wednesday in Brussels and for example the Belgium has invited the country leaders, which border the North Sea, according to Bloomberg News. The fishering polices and the use of the natural resources in the future if no-deal is agreed means that more work is ahead.
The UK Parliament is also discussing tonight how long the delay would be for Theresa May to put forward. On Monday the Parliament decided that extension is ok. This was backed by the UK Parliament by votes 420-110.
PM Theresa May sent last week a letter to Mr Tusk and asked for the extension until June 30. The UK is leaving the EU on next Friday the 12th April, if no deal is reached.
The UK Goverment has said that it will continue the talks with Labour Party after the summit on Thursday. The talks were halted because the parties said that there were not enough compromise.
