After six hours of talks in Brussels, European leaders have granted the UK a six-month extension to Brexit. British PM Theresa May, who had wanted a shorter delay, said the UK would still aim to leave the EU as soon as possible. Slovak PM Peter Pellegrini admitted that the compromise proposal on the new date for Brexit had not been easy to negotiate, and confirmed that there were at least two opinion camps during the talks. Slovakia and all the Visegrad Four countries were behind the proposal to delay Brexit for as long as possible. The UK must now hold European elections in May, or leave on 1 June without a deal.
