[email protected]: I don't see any need for changes in today's text. There was compromise. We'll see how things develop
[email protected]: my objective now is to get this deal concluded
[email protected]: Brexit is difficult. Our job is to manage Irish Government's perspective. It is not our job to comment on relationships with British Government
[email protected]: This was a structured negotiation. It is our role to ensure we could agree a text in relation to the Irish people
[email protected]: @theresa_may has asked for more time and we are happy to allow that
[email protected]: We had a deal today that would provide reassurance on the border and we want to ensure it remains intact
[email protected]: We have no hidden agenda here only the best interests of people in Ireland North and South Brexit
Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar says Ireland agreed on a border deal earlier in the day and he is surprised and disappointed with the UK Government that the agreement could not be secured
[email protected]: I am surprised and disappointed British government cannot proceed with what was agreed earlier today. We want to proceed to phase 2 but cannot do so without a firm commitment that there will be no hard border in Ireland
[email protected]: A hard border has been to the forefront of our concerns since Brexit began
European Council President Donald Tusk says the time for a Brexit agreement is getting tight but a deal next week is still possible

May: It's clear crucially that we want to move forward together, but on a couple of issues some differences do remain which require further negotiations and consultationwe will reconvene before end of week
Juncker: We stand ready to resume negotiations with UK this weekI'm still confident we can reach sufficent progress by next EUCO
Juncker: Despite our best efforts and significant progress it was not possible to reach a complete agreement today
Juncker: we've had a friendly and constuctive meeting today, always a pleasure to meet May and I have to say she's a tough negotiator

Huge ramifications for London if Theresa May has conceded that it's possible for part of the UK to remain within the single market and customs union after Brexit. Londoners overwhelmingly voted to remain in the EU and a similar deal here could protect tens of thousands of jobs – @MayorofLondon

Ireland foreign minister says border will look the same as it does now after Brexit
Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney says the UK and EU are very close to agreeing a deal on the Irish border and the border will look like it looks today after Brexit
[email protected]: We hope to see a balanced wording that protects Irish interests as a whole. That has always been and continues to be our objective
[email protected]: At no point in future, can we see a re-emergence of a hard border in Ireland. I hope we are in a place this evening where we have reassurance for Irish and British people
[email protected]: I suspect the border will look much like what it looks today. We have lanuguage now that gives us the safeguards we need and reassurance that hard border will not re-emerge
[email protected]: We want an absolute guarantee that no hard border will return to this island and we are very close to final agreement. We are in a much better place now than we have been in Brexit negotiations at any point to date
[email protected] :Border is one issue. We need clear language that protects GFA and the principle of consent and integrity of single market
[email protected]: There has been good progress made this morning regarding accomodation between Irish concerns and British position

Key meeting for UK Prime Minister Theresa May as Brexit talks enter decisive phase
We will not change our red lines. The lives of millions of families are at stake. If no clear commitment is made, the @EPPGroup will not be ready to assess the progress made as sufficient to enter a 2nd phase of negotiations tweets @ManfredWeber on Brexit
In Brexit negotiations, money is one of the problems, but it is not the biggest one. We are much more concerned about the fact that negotiations are stalled on the protection of EU citizens' rights and on the Irish case tweets @ManfredWeber
An EU source has told there has been no breakthrough in the overnight talks between British, European Commission and Irish officials on the Irish border issue post Brexit. It now looks unlikely the Irish cabinet will have a text to approve when it meets in Dublin at 9am
