United Kingdom made no estimate of Brexit's economic impact

Sterling rebounds with UK to 'concede' on single market Europe markets end higher as traders watch Brexit summit

Brussels is concerned that the adoption by Northern Ireland of different regulations on issues like food safety, environmental health and workers' rights would make border checks necessary, in order to prevent goods which do not meet EU standards being brought into the bloc, potentially undercutting European rivals.

The European Commission said it is waiting for a sign from the United Kingdom government before Brexit negotiations can resume.

Today is the deadline to submit the UK's position on a financial settlement, Irish border among other issues for it to be put to the leaders of the European Union 27 for them to decide if "sufficient" progress has been made.

He went on: "I have to say that she's a tough negotiator, and not an easy one, and she's defending the point of view of Britain with all the energy we know she has, and this is the same on the side of the European Union".

Earlier, European Parliament member Elmar Brok said he was "astonished" at how far the negotiations had come and that differences remained over "just a few words", which had pushed the pound higher. "I'm very confident that we will reach an agreement in the course of this week".

"No deal today doesn't necessarily mean the end of the world if we've got a couple more days left".

Luigi Ippolito of Italy's Corriere della Sera also sees Northern Ireland as the "last stumbling block for Brexit", and Turin's La Stampa agrees there is "trouble ahead for the government".

And May also faces potential obstacles from Northern Ireland's Democratic Party, whose 10 Westminster lawmakers are propping up her minority government and who will oppose any special treatment for Northern Ireland.

Coveney said that draft texts were produced following progress in talks last Thursday and that discussions had continued over the weekend.

The EU estimated at some 60 billion euros ($71 billion) what Britain should pay to cover outstanding obligations on leaving.

"We will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates Northern Ireland economically or politically from the rest of the United Kingdom", said DUP leader Arlene Foster. "Both governments understand what each other is asking for".

Juncker told reporters that despite significant progress during May's visit to Brussels, two or three open issues remained and "it was not possible to reach a complete agreement".

And he said reports that Mrs May was ready to allow a role for the European Court of Justice in overseeing EU citizens' rights in post-Brexit Britain were "utterly unacceptable".
