"I inform the European Union that the UK is seeking for another further extension of the date of Brexit. Britain proposes that this period should end (exit from the EU - ed.) on June 30, 2019 ... Britain is determined to complete the process of exit from the EU," the letter says.

The British Prime Minister expressed regret that the parliament has so far failed to approve the text of the Brexit agreement. She also assured Tusk that Britain will not participate in the elections to the European Parliament.
