Irish want no hard border pledge in writing

However, if May insists on leaving the EU customs union, there will have to be a "hard" border - and if there is, says Ireland's Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, he will veto any negotiations between the EU and the United Kingdom on a free trade deal after it leaves the Union.

The UK wants to progress negotiations to crucial issues of trade deals after Brexit, arguing that the border issues will be ironed out as these negotiations progress.

However, there are indications that the Irish issue will not be resolved in time for that meeting.

However, appearing on BBC2's Newsnight, Mr Creed said that they had yet to see a workable solution from the UK. And the DUP, always terrified that Britain will abandon them, simply will not allow any kind of border, however soft, to be put between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

"There are a number of ways in which we can ensure that for the future and look forward to having more detailed discussions on that as we move into phase two of the negotiations".

'We need political solutions now and we are not getting them from the UK Government'. Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said the situation is "rapidly evolving". Agriculture leaders in the region have said that farmers, who get 87% of their income from European Union subsidies, will be wiped out by Brexit if cross-border production in milk, cheese, meat and livestock is disrupted.

"And I believe that is not just in our interest, I think that's in the interest of continuing to strengthen the European Union". Customs rules to be decided as part of the future trade talks. I don't think that is a problem at all. "If there is no border we might as well do away with the internal market".

DUP MP Ian Paisley urged the Republic of Ireland to take a more mature approach to Brexit.

In Ireland, as well as keeping the border open, the GFA would be reanimated by a new economic agenda and a possible threat to peace on the border would be lifted.

"We're not about stopping that, but I'll tell you what, if you try to prevent part of the United Kingdom from leaving the European Union, or trip us up, that will reflect very badly on the deals that we do after we leave".

"Don't undermine our position and our sovereign integrity".

The UK government will find this hard to sell to the DUP, on whom it relies to stay in power.

Efforts to reach a deal on the Irish border post-Brexit are set to intensify in the coming days.

"I am up for co-operation, I believe co-operation between our two states is good and in many areas is vital".
