The European union envoys earlier today agreed to the give British government additional time to the Brexit deadline.
Naija News, however, understands that the Bloc did not figure out how much time will be given to the country to leave the EU.
Speaking on Friday in Brussels after EU envoys met with the EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said ambassadors from the EU’s 27 other nations accepted the terms of an extension and their “work will continue in the coming days.”
Two European diplomats said the ambassadors would meet again early next week. Andreeva hinted that the EU would not hold a special summit on Brexit to approve the extension, saying the decision will likely be made in a statement.
Naija News recalls that on Saturday evening, the European Union received three British letters: a first, from the Prime Minister’s Office but unsigned, calling for a postponement of Brexit beyond 31 October, and two others asking not to take it into account.
