Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, announced in a tweet that EU has agreed to extend the deadline for Brexit for three months until January 31, 2020.

However, the decision is expected to be formalised through a written procedure, Tusk stated.

On October 17, the EU and the UK reached a new Brexit agreement, which required regulatory approvals from EU and British Parliament. However, the House of Commons refused to vote for the new draft deal on October 21, forcing Prime Minister Boris Johnson to ask the EU for an extension to the previous Brexit deadline, October 31, 2019.
