Brexit border agreement reached between Ireland and UK

Brexit border agreement reached between Ireland and UK

The EU and United Kingdom failed to reach an agreement on sufficient progress towards a Brexit deal Monday following a key lunch between Theresa May and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

At around midday, the pound hit a day's high of 1.3523 against the dollar after news emerged that Westminster will concede on European Union trade rules for Northern Ireland.

DUP leader Arlene Foster, who held a mid-afternoon phone call with May, had earlier taken to the airwaves after reports emerged of an agreement that would give Northern Ireland a different regulatory status from the rest of Britain.

May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker fell short of a breakthrough, despite some encouraging progress on the Irish border issue.

Giving a statement today, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar indicated he was still ready to support a deal but that the United Kingdom government may need more time to agree it.

Varadkar said he had spoken to Juncker following the failure to strike a deal "and he has confirmed to me that Ireland's position remains Europe's position".

But a failure to agree on the other issues and move onto the next phase of talks raises the risk of Britain crashing out of the European Union in 2019 without arrangements on the terms of divorce or future relationship.

The EU has demanded "sufficient progress" on key withdrawal issues - the UK's exit payment, citizens' rights and Irish border - before the second phase can start.

Ireland's deputy premier and foreign affairs minister Simon Coveney said the Dublin government's concerns over the post-Brexit border were set to be addressed fully.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who called for London to be offered access to the single market if Northern Ireland could have it, tweeted that the "clear solution to this government chaos" was for the whole of the United Kingdom to remain in the single market and customs union, this sidestepping the issue of where the border would be.

European Union leaders want a deal on the breakup terms in time for them to agree at the December 14-15 summit whether to move the negotiations on to the next stage of talks, including trade.

"The Irish Government leaked a document which isn't the case, as far as I can tell".

But that task has been complicated by the DUP's show of strength, the publication of the sensitive wording from the draft negotiating text and Leo Varadkar's public insistence that the British government had signed up to a formula which the DUP found so hard to swallow.

He added: "This is very, very complicated and experts have been working on this issue now for months and they still haven't come up with a solution".
