BRUSSELS: European Union leaders could decide to extend the March 29 deadline for Britain's exit from the EU if London provided a valid reason for such a request, the European Commission said on Wednesday.

There has been no UK request for an extension.

"Should there be a UK request to extend setting out the reasons for such an extension it will be a matter for the EU to decide by unanimity," Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a regular news briefing.
