Ireland's justice minister, Charlie Flanagan, and the UK's Northern Ireland secretary, Karen Bradley, also attended the Dublin meeting.

But Mr Raab told a cross-party committee of MPs that the end of negotiations, which have stretched on for 19 months, was now "firmly in sight".

Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has told MPs he expects a deal on the UK's exit from the European Union by 21 November, and said agreement on the Irish border issue was "not far off".

The Guardian newspaper was also cautious, saying Downing Street insiders said talk of a deal was "very premature".

Niels Wichmann, the chief executive of the Danish fishermen's association, which holds a place on the Danish ministry of food's Brexit taskforce, said: "The issue of access to waters is part of the trade negotiations".

"I would be happy to give evidence to the committee when a deal is finalised, and now expect November 21 to be suitable", he wrote.

They are pinning their hopes on reaching agreement at a special summit of European Union leaders in Brussels at the end of the month.

"Our view is that the makings of a deal are now close, but it probably will not be done until December given that even a temporary "bare-bones" United Kingdom -wide customs union with the E.U. would take time to conclude", says Silvestre.

Raising hopes the impasse in Brexit talks could finally be crossed, Mr Coveney said a "lot of progress" has been made in recent weeks - but insisted the United Kingdom still needs to give ground.

The letter, released by the committee on Wednesday, was dated October 24 and therefore does not reflect any breakthrough in the past few days.

Britain and Ireland are co-guarantors of the 1998 peace deal that ended 30 years of sectarian violence in the province and introduced devolved government.

But nothing I have read has persuaded me that London is other than, at core, prepared to agree that Northern Ireland will always be entirely or largely in the European Union customs and regulatory space.

UUP leader Robin Swann said he wished Mr Raab had spent longer in Northern Ireland to listen to different voices. An agreement on the details of that backstop should be possible.

A meeting between Ms Bradley and Northern Ireland's main political parties in Belfast on Thursday to discuss the re-establishment of formal powersharing was branded a "waste of time" by SDLP leader Colum Eastwood.

US stocks were in the green most of the day, picking up momentum after US President Donald Trump reported on Twitter after a discussion with Chinese President Xi Jinping that talks were "moving along nicely" over a trade fight that has upset investors.

Mr Lidington said he believed they were "very close to resolving" the outstanding issues, and he reiterated the UK Government's commitment "to getting over those final difficulties" in the Brexit negotiations as soon as possible.

"While considerable progress has been made on the security front, the need for continued action against paramilitaries and ongoing vigilance remains".
