The EU can not be held 'hostage' to Brexit crisis, says Macron

Ireland won’t accept checks on Irish goods at EU ports – FM Let's be open to credible Brexit proposals from Britain: Ireland's Varadkar

Mr Coveney added that in the case of a no-deal Ireland will have a dual obligation to manage the border issues and also protect the integrity of the European Union single market.

"We will never abandon Ireland or the Irish people, no matter what happens, because this solidarity is the very goal of the European project".

Mr Varadkar's visit to France comes ahead of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's trip to Dublin on Thursday.

Varadkar said that while physical inspections would be necessary on imports like live animals, they could be done at ports in Northern Ireland rather than in the Irish Republic.

The meeting came after the House of Commons rejected Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal plan several times.

Simon Coveney said Ireland had intensified its no-deal contingency planning with the EU Commission but checks at EU ports on Irish products were not a runner.

A no-deal scenario raises the question of how Ireland would retain seamless cross-border trade with British-governed Northern Ireland, with the frontier between the two becoming the only land border between Britain and the EU's single market.

MPs may force Theresa May to ask for longer Brexit delay
"Despite the best efforts of MPs, the process that the House of Commons has tried to lead has not come up with an answer". A no-deal Brexit was "never our desired or intended scenario" but "becomes day after day more likely", he said.

Ireland has for months refused to even countenance contingency plans along its border with Northern Ireland in a no-deal Brexit, saying there would have to be "very hard conversations" over how it would be managed if Britain leaves without a deal.

"There's a view that a no deal would be a forever state of play from those that would argue for it, but frankly it's not", she said. On Tuesday he said any no-deal outcome would be of Britain's own making.

The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) voted against all four options tabled on Monday.

The backstop is the insurance policy to maintain an open border on the island of Ireland, unless and until another solution is found.

Whether that alternative plan involved a snap election, a referendum or a customs union it was up to the United Kingdom to decide, he added.

"In the unlikely event that we have a no-deal and the United Kingdom were to do trade deals with the USA or China and we had chlorinated chicken or hormone beef, or products made by child labour in Asian countries, the last thing we would want is that coming south of the border into the Republic of Ireland".

An extraordinary European Union summit is due to take place on 10 April.
