UK’s May Determined to Deliver Brexit on March 29
By Staff, News Agencies
The United Kingdom is set to leave the European Union in late March as the two sides have reached a withdrawal deal. However, it has not yet been approved by UK lawmakers, prompting fears of a no-deal Brexit both in Brussels and London.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May aims to deliver Brexit on time — on March 29 — her spokesman said on Monday.
May's spokesman also revealed that the British prime minister will travel on Tuesday to Northern Ireland where she will give a speech on the UK withdrawal from the bloc.
While addressing the issue, Theresa May will emphasize the UK's commitment to preventing a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Additionally, she will host meetings with local entrepreneurs and businessmen. And with European businesses, May will attend talks later on Monday, the spokesman noted.
This comes as the Article 50 deadline fast approaches, and with UK MPs still staunchly opposed to May's deal, fears of a no-deal Brexit are growing by the day.
