(VOVWORLD) - The UK would be welcome to stay in the EU if it changed its mind about Brexit, Donald Tusk has suggested.

The European Council President told MEPs that the UK would leave the bloc unless it had a "change of heart". The comments were welcomed by MPs who want a referendum on the final Brexit deal but Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the British public had voted in record numbers to leave the EU.  The government has said there will be no second vote ahead of the UK's exit in March 2019. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also dismissed the idea while insisting that MPs have a "meaningful vote" in Parliament on the terms of the withdrawal agreement. Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has said the prospect of a second vote cannot be ruled out, although he was confident it would return a larger margin for Leave than in 2016 - when 17.4 million people voted for Brexit.
