Merkel: I will fight to last minute for orderly Brexit
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would fight for an orderly Brexit right up until Britain’s planned departure from the European Union on March 29.
"I will fight until the last minute of the time to March 29 for an orderly exit. We haven’t got a lot of time for that, but still some days," Reuters cited her as saying.
Asked if she would be prepared to grant Britain a delay to Brexit, Merkel replied: "It is close to my heart that we have very good relations with Britain even after it leaves the European Union."
