On March 29, local time, the British Parliament voted on the EU-leaving agreement, with 344 votes against it and 286 votes in favour, and for the third time vetoed the EU-leaving agreement of Prime Minister Teresa May.
Tusk, the president of the European Council, said that the British Prime Minister had accepted the EUs proposal for a flexible extension until October 31. Tusk tweeted that the 27 EU countries and the UK have agreed to extend flexibly until October 31. This means that the UK needs an extra six months to find the best possible solution.
Reported that the 27 European Union countries held an emergency summit on 10 days to discuss the issue of Britains postponement of EU separation. There were great differences between France and Germany at the meeting. After a long period of discussion, the final agreement was reached.
Britain was scheduled to officially leave Europe on March 29. The European Union agreed on March 21 to postpone Britains departure from Europe, but if the House of Commons of the British Parliament fails to pass the agreement, Britain must make a new choice by April 12. Teresa May sent a letter to Tusk, President of the European Council on 5 April, requesting that the date of Britains departure from Europe be further postponed to 30 June.
Tusk, the president of the European Council, had previously written to European Union leaders that the remaining 27 heads of state should discuss whether Britain could flexibly postpone its exit within a year.
