European Union also preparing for 'No Deal Brexit'

Under May's proposals, Britain will seek a free trade area for goods with the European Union, largely by accepting a "common rulebook" for goods and British participation in European Union agencies that provide authorisations for goods.

"She is playing a game of Russian Roulette with the country which is frankly an insult to the referendum result and all those people who voted, no matter how they voted".

"Whoever is advising her that she can get Chequers through Parliament is deluded".

On the issue of keeping the Northern Irish border open and "frictionless", to avoid a visible border that would risk reigniting old tensions, May said the UK's proposal was "the only serious and credibly proposition on the table for achieving that objective".

- German Chancellor Angela Merkel said "substantial progress" is needed over the next four weeks.

The main sticking point continues to be how to handle the border between Northern Ireland, which will remain part of the United Kingdom, and the Republic of Ireland, which will continue to be part of the EU.

For Ireland, it's important not to undermine the hard-won peace after decades of sectarian tensions in neighboring Northern Ireland. But that backstop can not divide the United Kingdom into two customs territories, and we will be bringing forward our own proposals shortly.

The former soldier told the paper he was joining the hardline Brexiteer European Research Group (ERG), saying: "I've come to the conclusion that this "put up, shut up" attitude of the Prime Minister's - it's Chequers or nothing - you do as you're told or else, is a massive insult, not only to my colleagues but also to the voters".

She said her "Chequers" proposals for trade with the European Union, intended also to resolve arguments over the borders of Northern Ireland, were the only way forward. In practice, to allow for parliamentary ratification, that means a deal must be struck in the next couple of months. Both sides aim to reach a deal that solves the issue. "The Irish question needs something more than only good intentions". "Without clear a precise solution to the Irish question, and for the whole context of our economic future relations, it will be hard even to imagine a positive process after October", Tusk said.

North Korea, South Korea begin ‘era of no war’
Moon also spoke directly to the North Korean public, describing a peaceful future to an audience of some 150,000 people. The two sides agreed to break the impasse during Kim Jong Un's historic meeting with Trump in Singapore in June.

But this summit has now ended, leaving a decidedly bitter taste in the mouth and a sense that this will be a long and very hard autumn of negotiations with a real prospect of no deal at the end.

Mrs May has just told a clammy, tiny room full of journalists: "I believe that there is willingness to do a deal but let nobody be in any doubt, that as I've always said, we are preparing for no deal". Then, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said that the sides remain "no closer to a Brexit deal than in March".

"We are striving to make a compromise possible".

Some leaders expressed deep frustration.

Brexit was pushed by those "who predicted easy solutions", Macron said.

He said Brexit "demonstrated that those who explain that one can get by easily without Europe - that it will all go well, that it is easy and brings in a lot of money - are liars".

Britain is due to leave the European Union on March 29, 2019 - either with a deal or without one. Both sides want to show a tough face.

Significant chunks of her party won't wear the deal either.

Jean-Claude Juncker, who heads the EU Commission, is one of the leaders whom May failed to impress.
