British Prime Minister Theresa May has said that the UK will leave EU in March. She has added she is “determined” to deliver Brexit on time.
This statement had came out ahead of talks on the Irish backstop.
Talking to The Telegraph May said she would return to Brussels with a “fresh mandate, new ideas and a renewed determination”.
MPs have voted to seek an “alternative arrangement” to guarantee the Northern Ireland border stays open after Brexit.
But the Irish deputy prime minister has said “there are no credible alternative arrangements” to the proposal.
This backstop is a part of the withdrawal agreement and is intended at keeping the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic open after Brexit.
Meantime, the EU has publicly opposed to changing the backstop.
The two-year time limit on withdrawal negotiations enforced by the Article 50 process expires at 23:00 GMT on Friday 29 March.
However, some experts agree that the UK will need more time to negotiate its exit to avoid crashing out of the EU without a deal.
