COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark’s prime minister said he would recommend a long extension to Brexit, a delay to which is expected to be granted to the UK by EU leaders at an emergency summit on Wednesday.

“I travel to Brussels with an open mind and is on the team which says it is better to give a longer extension in order to give the UK more time,” Lars Lokke Rasmussen told reporters.
