On Twitter, the office of European Council leader Donald Tusk reported that the leaders gave their approval to the agreement in principle on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, currently scheduled for October 31, within two weeks.
Shortly afterwards, Donald Tusk stated that "the ball is now on the United Kingdom side". On whether this document will be approved by the British MPs, the President of the European Council replied only: "I have no idea what will be the outcome of Saturday's debate in the House of Commons."
At this afternoon's meeting, European leaders asked the EU institutions to ensure that the agreement could be implemented from 1 November, but underlined that they want to maintain "the best possible partnership with the UK in the future".

The remaining parties have not yet manifested in one way or another.
