UK's Hammond says economy should be priority in Brexit talks

"It takes two to tango and we're ready to dance", she said.

Though on the surface, Thursday's meetings with Northern Irish parties were aimed at breaking the logjam in forming a new cross-party regional government in the province, May needs broader acceptance in the province of a Conservative-DUP deal.

The British government has set a deadline of June 29 for an agreement on power-sharing.

He also pointed out that three months after Article 50 had been triggered, formal discussions had yet to start.

The Brexit negotiator asked London not to "waste time" and explained that it will take "several months to draw out the conditions of an orderly withdrawal, with hard and sensitive points of discussion".

"I can't negotiate by myself", he added.

"We are starting", Barnier said on Twitter. "We believe that the withdrawal process can not be concluded without the future relationship also being taken into account".

"So I think it is very much doable to have a deal by the end of this month", she concluded.

Gerry Adams led a delegation to Government Buildings including Ms O'Neill, Sinn Fein deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald and newly-elected Fermanagh South Tyrone MP Michelle Gildernew.

The former prime minister of Finland, Alexander Stubb, tweeted , "Looks like we might need a time-out in the #Brexit negotiations".

Mr Adams said he was pushing the Taoiseach to raise the prospects with London of a border poll within five years on the future of the North and prospective Irish re-unification.

On his talks in London with Prime Minister Theresa May on Thursday, he said they had offered an "Irish solution to an English problem" as giving Northern Ireland special European Union status after Brexit to keep an open border on the island.

"The issues that have to be dealt with have been talked about now for quite a period of time", she said.

"There is an irony to being lectured about our role in terms of the national government of the United Kingdom when Sinn Féin wants to be in government here in the Republic of Ireland". "What would happen then?"

European Union leaders, who will meet May at a summit next Thursday, have been irritated by her repeated threats to walk out with "no deal" - even if most see that as a campaigning bluff given the chaos it would cause.

Conservatives and the DUP are committed to strengthening British unity, delivering Brexit, combating terrorism and delivering prosperity but "at the moment there isn't a deal", the source said.

Following talks in Dublin with the new Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, she said that reaching a "sensible" Brexit had been the focus of their talks.

Arlene Foster said it was "right and proper" that her Democratic Unionist Party would vote for May's Queen's Speech next week.
