The EU and United Kingdom may still agree a Brexit transition deal by the end of March, Irish Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe said on Monday.

The current European Union draft Withdrawal Agreement is completely unacceptable, the DUP told the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier on Tuesday.

The leader of the Democratic Unionist Party has claimed the EU's draft Brexit plans are "unacceptable" for Northern Ireland.

"It is not acceptable and we will be urging our Government to come forward with different text because we feel that the whole of the joint report needs to be reflected in what is going on here in the heart of Europe".

The proposal caused an uproar in the U.K. and in Northern Ireland, with Brexiteers arguing that it would break the regulatory unity of the U.K. May said that no British prime minister could agree to it. "What continues to be critical for Ireland is that the guarantees that we need regarding how a hard border be avoided, that those guarantees be maintained".

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Mrs Foster said: "The DUP wants to see a sensible Brexit which works for Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom but also for our nearest neighbours too". "It would be an economic catastrophe if we allowed a border between ourselves and the rest of the U.K".

Quick guide Why is the Irish border a stumbling block for Brexit?

He added: "It is driving a coach and horses through the EU's own principles about no hard borders".

Early drafts of the agreement Britain hoped to get signed off on Monday said there would be "no divergence" from European Union rules that "support north-south cooperation", later changed to "continued alignment" in a formulation that appeared to allow for subtle divergences.

Although she described the summit in Brussels as "a good and very open meeting", she said their current draft legal text on the Irish border "has omissions in it, it also overreaches in other areas".

Mrs Foster's DUP MPs hold the key to Mrs May's slender Westminster majority.

Those proposals should not be flippantly dismissed, Foster said. "It talks about giving the north-south ministerial council powers". She said that the infrastructure on that border largely related to checking the movement of people rather than goods, which moved freely.
