Tusk tweeted on Tuesday that he will urge the other 27 EU nations to approve Britain’s delay, Associated Press reports.
Britain has sought a three-month delay until the end of January 2020. That was done after Parliament passed a law forcing Prime Minister Boris Johnson to seek the delay.
British MPs on Tuesday approved Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal in principle, but rejected the government’s fast-track attempt to pass the bill within three days.
