Speaking to reporters, Mr Tusk said he favoured a longer delay, but that six months “could be enough for a good solution”.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker added that: “No deal would be a disaster – everyone knows that.”
Mr Tusk reiterated the three options available now for the UK.
He said if Parliament ratifies the withdrawal agreement, the extension would be terminated – hence the ‘flexible’ deadline.
He added that the UK could “reconsider” its Brexit strategy that might lead to changes in the political declaration, but that the withdrawal agreement is not up for renegotiation.
Finally, he emphasised the UK could still revoke Article 50 and cancel Brexit altogether.
He said: “Let me finish with a message to our British friends: this extension is as flexible as I expected and a little shorter than I expected, but it’s still enough to find the best possible solution.
“Please do not waste this time.”
