VALLETTA, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat on Tuesday said in a TV interview that he is not the only EU leader who thinks Brexit may never happen.

However during the interview with CNN, he refrained from revealing the names of the other EU leaders who share his thoughts about this issue.

This interview follows his words on uncertainty around Brexit happening in last Friday's interview with Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant.

He stated he was sensing doubts about the decision of Britain to quit the EU beginning to creep in.

"For the first time, I'm starting to believe that Brexit will not happen. I am seeing hopeful signs that indicate things will change. I see encouraging signs that the tide is turning. I'm not saying the Brits have made a mistake, but the mood is changing," he said.

"It would be good if a political leader in the UK stands up and is courageous enough to address this new situation. Someone who says: let's put the Brexit end-deal to a popular vote," added Muscat.
