emerged as the main stumbling block in britain's negotiations to leave the european union hopes of a deal on monday were dashed at the last moment when the democratic unionist party raise objections or prime minister theresa may cannot ignore the party because she relies on it to prop up her fragile government we'll have some analysis from brussels and from london in a moment but first a look at how this deal unraveled. the handshakes were maybe a little premature the u.n. britain saying they close to solving one of brics it's thorniest problems the status of the irish border but despite reports a deal had been reached it failed to materialize despite our best efforts and to significant progress we. have made over the past days on the street mainly toward issues it was not possible to reach a complete agreement today but on
10:07 am
a couple of issues some differences do remain which require further negotiation and consultation and those will continue but we will reconvene before the end and i am also confident that we will conclude this positively. the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland is part of the u.k. northern ireland will also leave the e.u. but the republic of violent will stay a member the theory is the u.k. will replace these invisible border with customs checkpoints to keep the border free flowing one. possible solution would be to allow northern ireland to stay in the u.s customs union ofsted laves but that's something northern ireland's largest party has rejected we are being very clear in northern ireland mostly the european union on the same terms as the rest of the united kingdom and we will not accept
10:08 am
any form of regulatory divergence which separates northern ireland economically or politically from the rest of the u.k. the republic of violence says it believes the deal on the border issue had been agreed. the irish negotiating team received confirmation from the british government on the barnyard taskforce that the united kingdom agreed to text on the border that met our concerns i am surprised and disappointed that the british government now appears not to be in a position to conclude what was agreed to earlier today. next week e.u. leaders will meet to decide if enough progress on brics it has been made britain is under huge pressure to make sure the consensus is yes. let's get more on the story with our correspondents standing by in brussels and is in london good morning to you both gary let's start with you. they looked optimistic when they
10:09 am
went into this lunch meeting they came out they weren't so happy what happened. well if you would believe to reserve me the british prime minister she said there was a more negotiation and more consultation needed to finally reach that sufficient progress and if you look closely at the matter and if you look at the the irish prime minister and the representatives in northern ireland it became comes quite clear that it must have been northern ireland which is the key sticking point now and it is a matter of consultation on the part of theresa may with her allies who are propping up her minority government that she needs to clarify whether regulatory alignment is something that is on the table or is not bigger let's come to you know we heard what garrick said there the question of the irish border appears to be the key sticking point how big of a stumbling block is this wasn't the peace position already clear before
10:10 am
negotiations began well yes for sure i mean it's not a surprise that the d u p would be very very on the edge and really looking out for the particular words that would have been drafted in this document because in the northern irish peace process it is really words it's about details about the minuta behind that it is of course the do wish of the do you and the other unionist in northern ireland to stay close to the u.k. this is what they're really the big objective is this is where they where they entered into the peace process because they thought that they could stay close to the u.k. and they don't want to be sort of reunited in northern ireland to be reunited by the back door with the republic of ireland so they really want to stay close to the u.k. no matter what they want to stay close very good but if they were to be treated differently so staying in the us customs union what would happen with scotland and perhaps even
10:11 am
london has theresa may open up a pandora's box. well yes and we've seen it when initially there was talk about this document and then they could a stooge in the first minutes of scotland came out said he come on came out they say well we did not vote to leave the you we want to stay in the single market in the customs union so why can we if there is any special treatment for northern ireland the only real solution would be for the whole of the u.k. to well be regulatory and i into the e.u. but this is something that reason may and her government have so far ruled out so what happens next okereke let's bring that question to you what happens next is there is still a chance of a deal before the e.u. meets for its next summit clearly some real time is running short now next week we have that crucial summit when you leaders need to decide whether we move to that crucial face
10:12 am
a tour in future trade talks but as the head of the european council made clear it is tight but it's not impossible and so we're waiting here for theresa may to come back to brussels to finally make that crucial deal. correspondence i care of matters in a brussels and very good for us there are good math in london thank you both now the winter olympics start just over two months time and today we could see a decision on whether russia takes part or not the international olympic committee has already handed down lifetime bans to dozens of russian athletes for links to massive state sponsored doping now its executive board is meeting to decide whether to throw the entire team out of the two thousand and eighteen winter games altogether. the twenty fourteen winter olympics in sochi were a chance for russia and its president vladimir putin to burnish their reputation the hosts were the game's most successful nation winning thirty three medals in all
