BRUSSELS, June 28. /TASS/. The European Parliament on Tuesday voted for a resolution urging the United Kingdom to immediately start negotiations on leaving the bloc.
"The will of the majority of citizens of the United Kingdom must be done. It has to be respected and that is why we will be looking today intensively at the issue of Article 50 and its triggering," said European Parliament President Martin Schulz.
A total of 395 European Parliament members supported the resolution, while 200 voted against.
Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty outlines how an EU country might voluntarily leave the bloc and specifies that the leaving country should notify the European Council of its intention, negotiate a deal on its withdrawal and establish legal grounds for a future relationship with the European Union.
Some 52% of UK citizens (17.41 million people) voted on June 23 for leaving the European Union, while 48% (16.14 million) were in favor of remaining part of the bloc.
