Warsaw is ready for another Brexit delay if London fails to ratify the European Union withdrawal agreement on Friday, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said after talks with the bloc’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier, ONAreports citing Reuters.

Poland is among the EU countries that want to go soft on Britain and Morawiecki made clear his preference for the second option. On the other side of the spectrum is France, which wants to end the Brexit uncertainty as soon as possible.

“We are open to extending the process,” Morawiecki told a news conference. “Six, or nine, or twelve months, these options are acceptable to us.”
