Austria says any further Brexit extension must be for clear reason

VIENNA (Reuters) - Any further extension of the period leading up to Britain’s departure from the European Union should be for a clear reason, Austria’s minister for European affairs Gernot Bluemel said on Wednesday.

At the same time, Austria wants to play a constructive role in negotiations and still wants to avoid a hard Brexit, he told a news conference after a weekly cabinet meeting.
