STRASBOURG, France (AP) - Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz says any delay to Britain's departure from the European Union should be as short as possible, though he isn't specifying any date.
    
The Austria Press Agency reported that Kurz said he doesn't expect British lawmakers to vote Wednesday to leave without a deal March 29. He added that "if they do that, then there's no way to help them," but the damage to Britain would be much bigger than to Europe.
    
If a no-deal Brexit is voted down, British lawmakers will decide Thursday whether to request a delay to Brexit. Kurz wouldn't specify the length of any extension but said that "the shorter the phase by which we extend, the better." He said that, ideally, it would be a question of weeks and not months.
