London (AP) - After a fierce vote defeat in the British Parliament, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has put his Brexit deal legislation on hold. He wanted to negotiate a further extension of the deadline with the European Union. At the same time, he also had to push ahead with the preparations for an unregulated exit from the EU, Johnson said in parliament. A spokeswoman for EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Twitter that they took note of the results and expected information from the British government about the next steps.
