"I have made clear since becoming Prime Minister, and made clear to Parliament again today, my view, and the government's position, that a further extension would damage the interests of the United Kingdom and our European Union partners, and the relationship between us", he states, insisting that the prolonged Brexit process must be brought to a conclusion to prevent a "corrosive impact" from further delays.
In particular, Mr. Johnson appears to have won over several members of a group of 21 Conservative MPs he expelled from caucus last month after they sided with the opposition to block a no-deal Brexit.
Johnson complied with a law requiring him to seek a delay to the October 31 deadline, but he followed his request with a letter to European Union officials saying he didn't really think a delay was a good idea.
The prime minister has sent an unsigned letter to Brussels asking for a delay, along with a second letter saying he believed a delay would be a mistake.
The Brexit maelstrom has spun wildly in the past week between the possibility of an orderly exit on October 31 with a deal that Johnson struck on Thursday and a delay after he was forced to ask for an extension late on Saturday.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he had discussed the situation with Mr Johnson and "wished him success in the next stages" in the Commons.
Tusk said he had received the request for an extension, and European Union ambassadors met and took note of the request.
The vote is a blow to Johnson, who has previously said he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than prolong the tortuous process of ending Britain's 46-year-old membership of the EU.
He had hoped to pass his own newly struck deal at an extraordinary sitting of parliament on Saturday but that was derailed by a legislative booby trap set by a rebel lawmaker concerned that Britain might still drop out without a deal.
On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of anti-Brexit demonstrators marched to Parliament Square in London, insisting on a new referendum on whether Britain should stay or leave the EU.

Green didn't factor in the decision in his last outing, which came in a relief outing at home in Game 4 against Houston Thursday. There is also the possibility that Brad Peacock could start it off, even though he pitched the last inning of Game 5 last night.
"I think the October 31 date should be respected".
Johnson has tried to call a national election with the goal of getting a new Parliament that would support his Brexit strategy, but the opposition Labour Party and its leader, Jeremy Corbyn, say they won't okay an election until a Brexit extension has been put in place. He is still trying to meet the October 31 Brexit deadline but the timing is extremely tight.
The government also wants another vote on the deal on Monday, which may not be possible.
A Downing Street spokeswoman said the prime minister had spoken to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Tusk.
The British government will introduce legislation next week to implement the divorce deal, with a first vote as soon as Tuesday.
Mr Gove told Sky News's Sophy Ridge On Sunday: "We are going to leave by October 31st. If so then we do, if not we remain [in the EU]", Labour MP Keir Starmer told the BBC. A source said: 'It's becoming increasingly clear which ones are the irreconcilables and which ones have a future in the Conservative Party if they back this deal'.
"It means that we are preparing to ensure that, if no extension is granted, we have done everything possible in order to prepare to leave without a deal".
It was claimed by senior Tories that Mr Letwin had left a meeting with the Prime Minister seeking a compromise over his amendment and immediately rang the top lawyer from No 10 on Friday evening.
Mr. Johnson needs more than fellow Tories to get the deal through parliament.
