The heads of state or government of the 28 EU member countries convened in Brussels yesterday for a two-day summit which will be dominated by Britain's departure from the EU, after UK Prime Minister Theresa May managed to delay a vote on the Brexit deal in the British parliament on Monday.
Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković also attended the summit.
“We would like the hear Prime Minister Theresa May’s position. Obviously, she is coming to ask for additional assurances,” Plenković said in Brussels on Thursday evening.
“We think the Brexit agreement is really good, and now a lot of effort is needed to close the deal. If that doesn’t happen, the UK can ask for an extension on the deadline in order to avoid hard Brexit on March 29 next year. In any case, this needless referendum, and a campaign which was defamatory and in many ways false, has resulted in problems for the entire EU, and especially the UK,” Plenković added.
