German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas tweeted that tonight's no-deal vote is a "signal of reason" from London.
"The House of Commons has shown that the majority does not want a no-deal. A no-deal is in nobody's interest, we have made that clear again and again," Maas wrote.
Roberto Gualtieri, chairman of the European Parliament's economic and monetary affairs committee, said it was a "positive" move that British MPs rejected a no-deal Brexit, but reiterated that Europe needs to know what the UK "is in favor of."
He said that British Prime Minister Theresa May is "running out of options."
"Work with Labour for [a] closer EU-UK relationship or put [the] question back to the people," he suggested.
Gualtieri wasn't the only one suggesting May should work closer with the UK's main opposition party.
Udo Bullmann, a Member of the European Parliament from Germany, said it was time for May to "engage seriously" with Jeremy Corbyn, adding "there is no more time to waste."
