Northern Ireland's DUP says talks with Conservatives to continue in London

"What we are doing in relation to the productive talks that we are holding with the Democratic Unionist Party is ensuring that it is possible to, with their support, give the stability to the UK Government that I think is necessary at this time".

"We never put timescales on when we expect a deal to be done and I'm not going to start now".

Earlier on Thursday, it was announced the uncertainty in Westminster had pushed back the Queen's Speech - when the monarch announces the Government's programme for the parliamentary session - from Monday to Wednesday next week. May hopes to make an ally of Macron before the formal opening of Brexit negotiations, which is expected to take place next week.

"An arrangement at Westminster between two parties would not in any way alter or undermine the Belfast Agreement".

Ms O'Neill said: "We made very clear the the Prime Minister that any deal between herself and the DUP can not undermine the Good Friday Agreement, it can not undermine the joint nature of the office".

The head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service, Sir Malcolm McKibbin, has already taken on responsibility for moderating numerous exchanges, with Sinn Fein and the SDLP having already questioned the impartiality of Mr Brokenshire earlier in the process.

Mrs Foster arrived with colleague Nigel Dodds and waved to reporters in Downing Street but refused to be drawn on whether she would agree to a deal on Tuesday.

Some observers have maintained that a deal with the DUP risks destabilising Northern Ireland by increasing the influence of pro-British unionists.

Both the Conservative Party and the DUP were now focused on finalising the "terms and conditions" of the deal following a meeting between May and DUP leader Arlene Foster on Tuesday, the DUP source told the channel.

The First Minister said she was concerned by the "disregard" shown for the Northern Irish peace process and called for full details of any deal to be made public.

While May negotiates an agreement with the DUP, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour party, has repeatedly declared his readiness to form a minority government if she fails.

"My main concern is the peace process. The Irish government will be critical to that and they should reassert their role as co-guarantors of our agreements", he said.

The official Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union will start on Monday, according to a government statement on Thursday, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

The first round of talks, led by Brexit secretary David Davis and European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier are expected to last three days.

The start of parliament has been delayed since last Thursday's election, a gamble May took to strengthen her hand in talks to leave the European Union but which has left her scrambling for a deal with the eurosceptic DUP to keep her in power.
