Speaking at the EU-Arab summit in Egypt, British Prime Minister Theresa May said that extending Article 50 would not deliver a decision in parliament.

She also said that she will be focussing all her energies on leaving the European Union with a deal on March 29.

.

May is in Sharm el-Sheikh for an EU/Arab League summit, where she met European leaders, including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to try to win support for her efforts to make her deal more attractive to parliament, where frustrated lawmakers are gearing up to try to wrest control of Brexit from the government.

With Britain's Brexit crisis becoming increasingly tense, May is struggling to get the kind of concessions from the EU she says she needs to get her divorce deal through a deeply divided parliament and smooth the country's biggest policy shift in more than 40 years.
