Theresa may is set to meet key figures in the EU for the negotiations on “brexit”, which may determine if the united KINGDOM is able to move on to negotiations on trade.
BBC Europe editor Katya Adler says the deals have been reached this weekend in the united KINGDOM “divorce bill” and the rights of citizens.
But the Irish, the ministers said there was no agreement yet on the outstanding issue of the border with Northern Ireland.
No. 10 says, “lot of discussions” was coming, as it seeks a breakthrough at a summit of leaders of the european UNION in ten days.
Ms. May will meet with president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk, who has set a deadline for it to come from the front, with an improvement of the offer on the terms and conditions of the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.
The united KINGDOM is in the hope of initiating negotiations on a free trade agreement, but the EU has said that it will not recommend that can take place when it deems “sufficient progress has been made on the “divorce” bill, expat citizens and the Northern Ireland border.
The united KINGDOM voted for “brexit” from last year, due to a leave of absence in March 2019, but the negotiations between the EU and the united KINGDOM have not yet reached a breakthrough.

Ms. May will be accompanied by the brexit Secretary David Davis for discussions with Mr. Juncker and Mr. Tusk.
Downing Street described the meeting as a “milestone” on the road “crucial” summit with the 27 other leaders in the middle of the month, when he hopes to trade negotiations can start.
On the “divorce bill”, the united KINGDOM is believed to have recently increased its offer, which could be worth up to 50bn euros (Â£44bn). The two sides are also understood to have reached agreement on what the rules cover the citizens of the EU in the united KINGDOM – and the citizens of the united KINGDOM in the EU after brexit.A concrete commitment,”
This has attracted a lot of attention on the Irish question in the last few days, the Irish government was searching for more information about the “friction at the border,” the UK wants to establish if the customs controls are not necessary.
Mr Tusk has said Dublin must be satisfied, there will be no return to a “hard border with Northern Ireland, before the european UNION goes on to the next stage of the negotiations.
Before a meeting of the Irish cabinet, Ireland in Europe minister Helen McEntee said while there had been progress, she did not believe that the two parties still have close to a resolution.
“We are certainly not looking to veto anything,” she told the BBC Radio 4 Today.
“Ireland wants to move on to phase two, but it would be absolutely impossible to allow that when we don’t have absolutely concrete commitment, it is not difficult to border.”
Analysis: Personal insurance sought

Brussels is in an optimistic mood.
We speak of motion, traction, and absence of negativity in the last minute of the negotiations before the visit of the prime minister. This weekend, diplomats finalised agreements on the rights of citizens and the financial regulation.
Ireland remains the outstanding issue.
Dublin wants written assurances from Downing Street that the good Friday agreement is protected and that there will be no introduction of a hard border between the Republic of ireland and Northern ireland.
What is at stake here is not a final agreement, but for the european UNION to decide whether sufficient progress has been made in brexit talks to expand to include the negotiations on the future of EU-UK relations.
Theresa may, a lunch with the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker is the key.
It is going to give personal assurances, and iron out the disagreements that remain. If all goes well, a joint UK-EU report will be published thereafter lock in all agreements to date.
The two sides describe themselves as cautiously optimistic, but some in the UK are likely to feel the government has bowed too deeply to the demands of the EU.

Ms. May meeting is the removal of the EU bill returns to the house of Commons for a fourth day of discussions, with the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt warning that there will be no brexit at all, unless Ms. may is supported.
His comments came after a series of prominent Conservatives, including Jacob Rees-Mogg John Redwood and the former chancellor Lord Lawson signed a letter calling Ms. May refuse to settle in the united KINGDOM “divorce bill”, unless Brussels agrees to a series of requests.
These activities included the end of the European Court of Justice the jurisdiction of the instant of great britain in March 2019.
The prime minister has promised to the ECJ, in short, in the united KINGDOM will end, but it was suggested that it might continue for an indefinite period of time during an “implementation phase” after great britain.
Conservative MP and pro-brexit activist Owen Paterson has claimed that he was “just behind” the prime minister, in spite of the signing of the letter.
He told BBC Breakfast: “It is very important that the European Union understands that many of us are fed up with the fact that they are the treatment of [Mrs may], in some respects, quite rudely and churlishly and not getting to the absolute key of the negotiation, which is the economic relationship that we have with the Eu once we leave.
“The simple slogan of the referendum was we want to take back the control. Once we have taken back the control that one can really enjoy the benefits.”
