France was the only country which didn’t support granting a Brexit extension until the end of January at a meeting of European Union ambassadors, two diplomats said, pushing instead for a one-month delay to Nov. 30 at the latest. The bloc put off a decision until after British politicians vote Monday on Boris Johnson’s proposal for an early general election.
