October 18, 2019 at 08:42 GMT +00:00 · Published

EU leaders arrived on Friday for the second and final day of the bloc's summit on Brexit in Brussels. It comes after the announcement of an agreement between the European Union and the UK on an orderly withdrawal.

"It's not my intention to imagine that the deal would not pass in parliament. And that's why we are really clear. We took yesterday an important decision and now it's the responsibility of the parliament in the UK but also the European Parliament to give their opinions," said European Council President-elect Charles Michel.

European Commission President-elect Ursula von der Leyen also said the leaders would now wait for parliaments' vote on the agreement.

On Thursday, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the agreement which has been endorsed by the EU leaders.
