European Council President Donald Tusk said on Wednesday (February 6) he hoped British Prime Minister Theresa May would come to Brussels on Thursday (February 7) with a plan on how to solve the impasse - as the EU would not re-open the Brexit deal.

Tusk, speaking at a joint news conference with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar after their talks in Brussels, reiterated the European Union's stance that the Irish border backstop in the withdrawal agreement had to stay.

Varadkar said the Brexit deal, which has since been rejected by the UK parliament, was the best deal.

He said Britain's recent political instability was yet another proof of why the backstop was needed.
