May, Juncker 'likely' to hold Brexit talks at 0600 GMT

A disagreement over borders between Northern Ireland and Ireland almost derailed the deal this week.

Despite the appearance of good cheer on both sides, significant tensions appeared to remain embedded in the agreement over the divorce deal, which will not be finalized until the very end of the full Brexit negotiation.

The European Commission has announced that "sufficient progress" has been made in the first phase of Brexit talks.

May has got the deal that she needed-and the agreement that businesses were clamoring for.

Theresa May arrived in Brussels on Friday morning following overnight talks on the issue of the Irish border.

Conversations continued with the DUP, which scuppered a deal on the Irish border on Monday after balking at "regulatory alignment" planned between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

"We've seen a rally in the pound over the last couple of weeks on the expectation of a deal being agreed so what we may be seeing is simply a case of buying the rumour and selling the fact", he said.

It is possible that the leaders would call an emergency summit in January or February 2018 to agree to move talks on and discuss the terms of a transition period.

Tusk would then confirm that he is asking the other 27 European Union national leaders to consider draft guidelines on trade negotiations for approval at the summit he will chair.

"There are lots of issues that are subject to negotiation", he said.

May wants the European Union to open the so-called second phase of Brexit negotiations, about the trading relationship after the United Kingdom's withdrawal at 2300 GMT on March 29, 2019. A trade deal may take years to formulate and allowing companies and even people to adapt to the new reality will take time.

"The most hard challenge is still ahead".

'We have grounds to hope now that our members will be able to send their employees off for the Christmas break feeling more comfortable about their status here.
