>>European Union leaders and the U.K. government have agreed to a “flexible extension” of the Brexit deadline until Oct. 31.

>>Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, said this development provides an “additional six months for the UK to find the best possible solution.”


To  the response of an emergency summit convention requested by Prime Minister Theresa May  for further delay to the U.K.’s departure from the bloc, above decisions were come out.

U.K. lawmakers rejected the Brexit deal so they forced Prime Minister Theresa May to ask for more time. she struck with the EU last year in three parliamentary votes on the agreement. Members of Parliament (MPs) have also failed to reach a majority in support of alternative options, however.

Even though the prime minister had previously promised not to extend Brexit beyond June 30, in order to avoid taking part in the upcoming European elections.

May has been holding talks with opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the hope that a compromise or alternative plan can be found, but this has so far proved elusive.
