Britain should be given a reasonable amount of time to work out its exit from the European Union, though the delay to Brexit could be longer than British Prime Minister Theresa May has requested, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday, ONAreports citing Reuters.

“I am, and the government is, of the view that we should give the two parties a reasonable amount of time,” Merkel said of Britain’s ruling conservatives and opposition Labour Party, who are in talks to find a Brexit deal.

“It could well be that it is a longer extension than has been requested by the British prime minister,” Merkel told Germany’s Bundestag lower house of parliament.

May has asked EU leaders to postpone Britain’s exit until June 30.
