The other 27 EU member states are signalling their willingness to allow the UK to postpone its withdrawal (the UK is expected to leave the EU on 29 March 2019). If the UK Parliament approves the withdrawal agreement by 29 March, Brexit will be postponed until 22 May to allow time for the necessary legislation to be passed. If the British Parliament has not approved the agreement by then, Brexit will be postponed to 12 April. The EU Agrees to postpone the Brexit date to 31 January 2020. However, the heads of state and government of the remaining 27 EU Member States must also give their consent. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly referred to as the United Kingdom (United Kingdom) or Great Britain[Note 1], is a sovereign country in northwestern Europe, off the northwest coast of continental Europe.   The United Kingdom includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands in the British Isles.  Northern Ireland shares a land border with the Republic of Ireland. Otherwise, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea to the east, the English Channel to the south and the Celtic Sea to the southwest, making it the 12th longest coastline in the world.
The Irish Sea separates Great Britain and Ireland. The total area of the United Kingdom is 93,628 square miles (242,500 km2), with an estimated population of 68 million in 2020.  The EU and the UK reach a provisional agreement on citizens` rights and the financial terms of Brexit. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the UK in 2020 and 2021. This law was adopted on the 23rd. January 2020, nine days before the united Kingdom`s withdrawal from the European Union. The Withdrawal Agreement also contains provisions allowing the United Kingdom to leave the Convention establishing the Statute for the European Schools, with the United Kingdom being bound by the Convention and the accompanying rules on accredited European Schools until the end of the last academic year of the transition period, i.e. the new relationship between the EU and the United Kingdom will begin if an agreement has been concluded that has been approved by the EU Member States, the European Parliament and the British Parliament. Following the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union, the functioning of the UK`s internal market will be enshrined in the UK`s Internal Market Act 2020, which ensures that trade in goods and services continues without internal barriers in the UK`s four countries.   Ms von der Leyen and other senior EU officials are skeptical of the UK government`s plan to negotiate a comprehensive agreement on the future relationship before the end of 2020. They think the timeline is too tight for that.
