The European Council President Donald Tusk accuses the UK of wasting Brexit delay and says Brexit is not up for negotiation, The Mirror reports.

“The Withdrawal Agreement is not open for renegotiation, and we have been informed on the state of play on planning for a no-deal scenario”, he said.

Donald Tusk has also accused the UK of "wasting time" over Brexit as the Tories plunge into a month-long leadership battle.

"When it comes to Brexit as such, yes, I am afraid that you are wasting time. But of course, I can understand why. The internal problems the political transformation in London this is also what we should respect,” the Mirror reports.

The European Council President also said he was "not happy" with Britain's political turmoil even though he can understand it is "political reality".

 “Now we are waiting for the new British Prime Minister and we have to be very precise and also patient in waiting for the decisions,” Tusk said.

Earlier, it was reported that on April 10, 27 EU countries and the United Kingdom agreed on a flexible reprieve until October 31.

However, the British assumed that Brexit would be delayed for a shorter time. In particular, on 9 April, the British Parliament voted in favor of Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan to postpone Brexit until 30 June.
