Tusk Invites EU Leaders to Agree Short, Conditional Brexit Delay

According to Reuters, European Council President Donald Tusk said that he believed the EU should endorse a short delay of Brexit beyond March 29 if Britain’s parliament ratifies the stalled divorce agreement next week.

Tusk will chair a Thursday-Friday summit of EU leaders set to meet in Brussels after British Prime Minister Theresa May asked for a postponement until June 30.

Tusk said, “I believe that we could consider a short extension conditional on a positive vote Withdrawal Agreement in the House of Commons."
