Ireland demands 'significantly more clarity' from United Kingdom over #Brexit border

The new Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney December 1 welcomed the reported proposal and confirmed to media outlets Dublin was in talks with Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland, which shares power with British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives on the proposals.

MPs have said a return of border checks between the Republic of Ireland and the north seems "inevitable" after Britain leaves the European Union.

London's proposal would allow "Regulatory Convergence" or the adoption of European Union industry standards by Northern Ireland to continue in an attempt to minimize the disruption of trade between it and the Republic of Ireland.

"We want the negotiations to move on to phase two so we can talk about our future trade relationship".

Negotiators are reportedly planning a Brexit deal that keeps the border as it is now - but that'd involve giving Northern Ireland different trade rules than the rest of the United Kingdom, which the DUP argues is unfair.

The DUP yesterday warned that allowing Northern Ireland to remain in the single market alone would be "deeply destablising" to the coalition agreement.

Mentioning British Prime Minister Theresa May's request that a final offer is put on the table by December 4, Tusk added that after that: "We can assess whether sufficient progress can be made at the upcoming European Council".

But British Prime Minister Theresa May's room to offer additional concessions to Dublin appeared extremely limited as the Northern Ireland party propping up her government hinted it might withdraw its support if she gives too much.

The EU will decide in mid-December whether there has been sufficient progress in Brexit negotiations to consider moving the talks to a further stage where future relations between the United Kingdom and the bloc are discussed.

This is why Donald Tusk's meeting today with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has a special importance.
