British PM asks EU to postpone Brexit date until June 30

London, Apr 5 (Xinhua/UNI) British Prime Minister Theresa May wrote to the European Union (EU) on Friday to request a further delay of Brexit date until June 30.

"The UK proposes that this period should end on June 30, 2019. If the parties are able to ratify before this date, the government proposes that the period should be terminated early," May wrote in the letter to President of the European Council Donald Tusk.

The prime minister said the British government would like to agree a timetable for ratification that allows Britain to withdraw from the EU before May 23, but the government would continue to make responsible preparations for the European elections on the date.

May had to set out future plans to the EU this week, under the terms given by the bloc for the first Brexit extension which is set to end on April 12. The British parliament hasn't approved any divorce deal so far.
