The European Union is ready to prolong the transition period after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU at the end of October next year, since additional time is needed to conclude a trade agreement between the parties. Western media, citing diplomats familiar with the situation, reported that the main negotiator for Brexit from the European Union, Michel Barnier, at a meeting of EU ministers, said that such a decision could be made. It is expected that British Prime Minister Theresa May will speak at the EU summit in Brussels at the invitation of Donald Tusk, President of the European Council.
