German Defense Minister open for Brexit extension

German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, the nominee for European Commission president, on Monday said she would support giving the UK more time to negotiate its exit from the European Union.

Ms. Ursula said in letters to the European Parliament that if elected, she is ready to pave the way to the ambitious strategic partnership Germany wants to build with the United Kingdom. She added she will support a further extension if it is proven to be reasonable.
