UK’ Theresa May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel to meet on April 9 amid Brexit deadlock

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was slated to hold a meeting with the United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May on April 9 in Berlin, amid the Brexit impasse.

According to ANI news reports, while confirming the development, the German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert stated Merkel will receive May on Tuesday in the chancellory, where both the leaders will likely hold discussions over a short delay to the Brexit process.

May, after the negotiations with Merkel in Berlin, was expected to pay an official visit to Paris and hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.

She will also pay an official visit to Brussels on April 10 in order to hold talks with the European Union leader during a special summit. May will also attempt to seek short extension to postpone the Brexit process by June 30.

Unless the bloc is in favour, Britain is due to leave the EU with a no-Brexit deal on April 12.

Days back, May was seeking backing from the main opposition Labour Party as she believed without the opposition’s backing, her proposed Brexit deal would not get passed through the parliament.

In an official statement, CNN has quoted May on Sunday as saying, “Given the parliament has also made clear it will oppose a no-deal Brexit, the only way to secure a deal was through a compromise with Labour.”
