Irish Prime Minister says hopes of reaching November Brexit deal are fading

Tinnitus has a major effect on many sufferers

"But we do have one scheduled anyway for the 13th and 14th of December, so not getting it done in November doesn't mean we can't get it done in the first two weeks of December", he added.

"I think some initially thought it might have some news regarding Ireland and the border but I am told it doesn't have any of that".

The european negotiator Michel Barnier held Wednesday insufficient progress with the London agreement on the exit of the Uk from the EU, and cooled the hopes of the british of an extraordinary summit in early November. Negotiators from both sides, however, remain at odds over ways to guarantee there is no return of border controls on the frontier between Ireland and the British province of Northern Ireland. "There are still important issues outstanding". But officials have repeatedly cautioned they are still haggling over the fate of the land border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

In a wide-ranging speech that moved from European defence to electric vehicles, he mentioned Brexit only to promise to "fulfill my Brexit mission to the end" and make a brief opening joke that his speech would be short because "the clock is ticking".

The concerns focus on Attorney General Geoffrey Cox's advice on how an exit from the backstop could be found to make sure the United Kingdom is not permanently kept within a customs union, which would severely curtail its ability to strike global free trade deals - a key prize for Brexiteers.

"Without a backstop there will be no deal. "(It is) clear that more work is needed in Brexit negotiations.

Varadkar spoke to British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, agreeing that any backstop should be temporary.

"This election will be tougher than those before", Barnier said.

Tuesday, on a visit to London, the head of the diplomacy of the belgian Didier Reynders has found hard to reach an agreement before the end of the year, and pointed out that "the possibility of a" no deal, " + (absence of agreement) is more and more present".

Mrs May updated European Council president Donald Tusk on the state of the Brexit talks on Wednesday. European Union envoys in Brussels will get an update on Friday and then ministers from the 27 states staying in the bloc after Brexit are due to meet on Monday.

Many ministers have backed a mechanism that would allow the Britain to leave unilaterally, on its own accord.

Varadkar and Barnier were in Helsinki to attend a two-day congress of the European People's Party.
