German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on April 10th that she was open to giving Britain more time to arrange its exit from the EU than the June 30th departure London is seeking, AFP has reported.

Merkel told Germany's parliament ahead of a special EU summit in Brussels dedicated to Brexit that leaders may well agree to a delay "long than the British prime minister has requested".
