  • The UK and European Union have agreed a Brexit transition deal

Mr Davis is meeting with Michel Barnier, the European Union's chief Brexit negotiator, on Monday with the aim of agreeing a deal which will then be put to EU leaders later this week at a crunch meeting in Brussels.

The Irish Government will demand that the Border issue is being satisfactorily addressed before it agrees to the transitional agreement, which requires unanimous consent by all member states.

"Negotiators must now focus on reaching agreement on key aspects of our trading and regulatory relationships with the European Union, where failing to reach a deal would create substantial costs and disruption for industry".

"A joint legal text which constitutes in my mind a decisive step because we were able this morning to agree, and after all those days and nights of hard work, on a large part of what will make up an global agreement for the ordered withdrawal of the United Kingdom".

The UK has agreed to a contentious "backstop solution" which would keep Northern Ireland signed up to European Union rules in order to avoid a hard border with the Irish Republic.

A report published by the group said there is "no evidence" of the technical solution promised by Ms May, to allow Northern Ireland to break free from the customs union and single market without the return of border posts and checks.

The agreement will not be finalised in legal text until the Irish border issue is resolved.

"A good deal for the European Union and Britain is closer than ever before", said Britain's Brexit Secretary David Davis during a joint press conference with his European Union counterpart Michel Barnier.

The EU proposed that as the "backstop" option which would not take effect unless the United Kingdom government fails to produce an alternative solution for avoiding a hard border.

British efforts to create divisions between the remaining countries have yielded few returns so far, despite ministers' frequent trips to national capitals. It said the British government should consider whether a limited extension to the Article 50 period is needed.

Hubner told Reuters that after "a weekend of intense negotiations. we now have an agreement on the financial settlement, citizens rights and transition and large parts of the other separation issues". The pound last week flirted with the $1.40 mark but failed to break through it and head towards the $1.43 levels it hit in January when a dollar sell-off gathered steam.
