LONDON | The Latest: Austria suggests more time for Brexit possible
LONDON—Jan 19, 2019—The Latest on Britain’s exit from the European Union (all times local):
Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is suggesting it may be possible to give Britain more time to leave the European Union if it comes up with a good strategy, saying a no-deal Brexit would be bad for everyone.
Kurz is quoted by Germany’s Welt am Sonntag newspaper Saturday saying that “If London presents an orderly strategy and plan, a postponement of the exit date by a couple of months is conceivable.”
Kurz, whose country turned over the rotating EU presidency to Romania in December, says that “Britain is now in the process of defining its ideas.”
As it stands, Britain will leave the EU without an agreement on March 29 unless its Parliament approves a deal before then.
