ZAGREB, Dec 13 (Hina) – The heads of state or government of the 28 member-states of the European Union convened in Brussels on Thursday for a two-day EU summit which will be dominated by Britain’s departure from the EU after Prime Minister Theresa May managed to delay a vote on the Brexit deal in the British parliament.

“We would like to hear the position of Prime Minister Theresa May. Obviously, she is coming with the proposal that she should be given additional assurances. We think that the Brexit deal is really good, and now a lot of political effort is necessary to bring the deal to a conclusion. If that does not happen, the UK can request a prolongation of the deadline, so that a ‘hard Brexit’ does not take effect immediately after 29 March next year,” Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenković said in Brussels on Thursday evening.

“Anyway, because of this unnecessary referendum on Brexit, which was a defamatory and in many aspects a fake campaign, now the whole of Europe and especially the UK have a problem,” Plenković said.

Other topics on the agenda are the proposed multiannual financial framework for the 2021-2027 period, which the European Commission delivered in early May, as well as migrations, the euro area reform and the fight against fake news.
