The prime minister arrived in Brussels on Wednesday for the Special European Council. Heads of 27 EU member states, excluding the United Kingdom, have reached a consensus on Brexit delay, which has been requested by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, the European Council head, Donald Tusk said, adding that he would proceed with discussing the extension with May.
"EU27 has agreed an extension of Art. 50. I will now meet PM @theresa_may for the UK government's agreement", Tusk wrote on Twitter late on Wednesday. A diplomatic source told reporters that the EU leaders had preliminary agreed to delay Brexit until 31 October with a number of conditions.
On Tuesday, the UK House of Commons approved Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to postpone the country's withdrawal from the European Union from 12 April to 30 June.
However, certain EU leaders have expressed their concerns about the extension of Brexit deadline. In particular, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and French President Emmanuel Macron have reportedly said that long extension of the Brexit puts at risk the legitimacy and integrity of the European Union's institutions.
