Juncker says he doesn't see Brexit delay deal being reached this week

Brussels - EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Wednesday he does not expect a decision on delaying Brexit to be reached at this week's EU summit.

Speaking to radio broadcaster Deutschlandfunk, Juncker said talks on extending the time for Brexit negotiations will likely have to be pushed back to next week.
Britain is currently scheduled to leave the European Union on March 29. British Prime Minister Theresa May has worked out a deal with EU leaders that would govern the technicalities of the departure, but has been unable to push the measure through the British Parliament.
EU leaders are scheduled to meet for a regular summit in Brussels on Thursday and Friday, at which May is expected to request an extension of the Brexit deadline so she can work out a deal establishing Britain's post-Brexit relations with the EU.
