Prime minister asks EU to delay Brexit to June 30
British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday again sought to delay Brexit until June 30 to avoid a chaotic withdrawal from the European Union in one week.
Britain is set to leave the EU without a withdrawal deal in place on April 12 unless an agreement is reached at a Brussels summit April 10.
In a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk, May asked for an extension until the end of June and agreed to make contingency plans to take part in European Parliament elections on May 2326, if necessary.
Tusk on Friday proposed a flexible extension of up to a year.
