European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that they were ready for a no-deal Brexit but had nothing to gain from it.
He added that the EU would never kick out a member state.
As a result of the European Council emergency meeting, which took place on 10 April, London was given a flexible Brexit extension until 31 October. The UK was obliged to hold EU elections in May if it does not leave by that time, or withdraw without a deal on 1 June.
Originally, the United Kingdom was supposed to have left the bloc on March 29, however, the May government failed to secure support for its divorce agreement before the deadline.
