Tusk to recommend Brexit delay to EU27

President of the European Council Donald Tusk said on Tuesday he will recommend the EU 27 to accept the request of the United Kingdom for a Brexit extension.

He tweeted: "Following PM @BorisJohnson’s decision to pause the process of ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, and in order to avoid a no-deal #Brexit, I will recommend the EU27 accept the UK request for an extension. For this I will propose a written procedure."

Earlier in the day, he noted that a no-deal Brexit will never be the European Union's first choice but added the bloc needs to prepare itself for any possible scenario.
