Brexit: Varadkar says new agreement 'possible' by end of October after talks with Johnson - live news
He said he hoped there would be the outline of a deal next week and he believed the "objectives" of the backstop could be achieved after today's talks.

"I can't predict that with any certainty but I think all sides would like there to be an agreement next week at the council if possible and obviously there is a further deadline after that which is 31 October, so I would say a short pathway rather than a long pathway."

He indicated a cautious optimism and a hope that talks could now take place away from the glare of the media and acrimony of anonymous briefings.

Varadkar said the two prime ministers had agreed not to disclose any new proposals that might have been put on the table but that talks would now move to Brussels where Brexit secretary Steve Barclay is meeting Michel Barnier tomorrow.
