"No matter how many devices this parliament invents to tie my hands, I will strive to get an agreement in the national interest ... This government will not delay Brexit any further," UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson told Parliament on Tuesday.

Axar.az reports citing Indiatoday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that he would not request an extension to Brexit, hours after a law came into force demanding that he delay Britain's departure from the European Union (EU) until 2020 unless he can strike a divorce deal.

For the second time in a week, lawmakers rejected Boris Johnson's request to try to break the deadlock through an early national election.

With the future of Brexit mired in uncertainty, parliament was suspended until October 14, sparking tense scenes in the House of Commons where opposition lawmakers held signs reading "silenced" and yelled "shame on you" at Boris Johnson's ruling Conservatives.

"I will go to that crucial summit on October 17 and no matter how many devices this parliament invents to tie my hands, I will strive to get an agreement in the national interest ... This government will not delay Brexit any further," Boris Johnson said.
