Poland will constructively analyse British motion for Brexit delay

Poland's Deputy Foreign Minister Konrad Szymański declared on Thursday evening that "Poland will constructively analyse the British motion to postpone the UK's departure from the EU, together with its justification."

The British parliament voted on Thursday to seek a delay for Brexit. Lawmakers approved by 412 to 202 a motion setting out the option to have a short delay by agreeing to a Brexit deal by March 20 or a longer delay if no deal can be agreed in time.

"We are convinced that a no-deal Brexit means losses for the British economy and that is also harmful to the EU's economic interests," Szymański stressed.

"A no-deal, chaotic Brexit will poison UK-EU political relations. That is why I am convinced that everybody - both in Brussels and in London - should do their best to avoid this harmful scenario. The postponement of the Brexit date can be helpful," he underlined.
