London: The European Union has been given more time from Great Britain to ratify the new trade agreement. All EU states must have signed the treaty by the end of April. A few days ago the EU asked for an extension to ensure that the document was available in all 24 Community languages. Originally, the trade agreement within the EU was supposed to be ratified by the end of February. London signed the contract in December. A British government spokesman was disappointed that Brussels could not meet the deadline. For companies and citizens on both sides, this means an enormous burden and uncertainty.
