SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AP) — After nearly two years of bitter and divisive talks on the departure of Britain from the European Union, it has come to this — the sides cannot even agree on a divorce date anymore.

European Union leader Donald Tusk said that with any agreement far from being clinched and businesses fearing a chaotic and costly cliff-edge departure, keeping the Brexit day at March 29 would be too risky.

“I believe that in the situation we are in, an extension would be a rational solution,” Tusk told reporters.
