The European Union would extend Article 50 if the agreement were not adopted soon, says Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, at a press conference in Egypt.

EU President Donald Tusk says that extending the Brexit deadline is a & # 39; rational solution & # 39; would be.

"To put an end to speculation, I can begin by saying that Prime Minister May and I discussed many issues yesterday, including the legal and procedural context of a possible extension." It is absolutely clear to me that there is no majority in the Lower House to approve a deal, we will be faced with an alternative: a chaotic Brexit, or expansion.

The less time there is until March 29, the greater the chance of an extension. And this is an objective fact; not our intention, not our plan, but an objective fact.

I believe that in the situation we are in, an extension would be a rational solution. But Prime Minister May still believes she can avoid this scenario.

And I can assure you, and I did it yesterday during my meeting with Prime Minister May that it does not matter what scenario it will be, all [EU] 27 shows maximum understanding and goodwill ".
