Johnson sent a letter to the EU asking for the extension on Saturday, but also added a letter saying he does not want the EU to approve the request, reports VRT NWS.
Johnson insists on 31 October as the date on which the United Kingdom will leave the European Union.
Gove confirmed to Sky News that the government intends to keep its word. “The letter has been sent because Parliament has obliged us to do so. However, the parliament cannot change the Prime Minister’s mind. Parliament cannot change the policy of the government and its determination,” he said.
“We know that the EU wants us to leave, and we have an agreement that permits us to leave,” he added.
