London [U.K.] Sept. 23 (ANI): British Prime Minister Theresa May has proposed pausing full Brexit for the transition period of two-year, until 2021, during which Britain would effectively keep its existing relationship with the European Union and enjoy unfettered access to the single market.
May, while speaking at the Santa Maria Novella church in the heart of Florence in Italy, said more time was needed to work on the details of Brexit.
The Prime Minister said that the proposed implementation phase would be strictly time-limited and will last exactly in "about two years" and the UK would still be formally leaving the bloc in March 2019.
