Brexit negotiations risk stalling if Britain does not present a realistic solution for the future of the Irish border after London rejected an EU fallback proposal last week, European Council President Donald Tusk said on Thursday.
The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, will then have a mandate to start negotiations on a broad-brush outline of a trade deal - a "heads of agreement" text that will be separate from the UK's EU divorce treaty.

Meanwhile Labour's spokesman on the economy, John McDonnell, said financial services must be included in a future trade deal and that's a "red line".
Tusk said on a free trade agreement with Britain that "we will do our best, as we did with other partners, such as Canada recently".
Joining Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein in the EEA is not seen as a viable option for Britain, given that the government has ruled out free movement of EU citizens, continued contributions to the EU budget and acceptance of EU rules it might not agree with.
"So far none of the trading agreements Europe has with any other country includes financial services, so I am not sure a new EU/UK trading agreement would cover that", said a source in the European Parliament.
