"The EU can not be held hostage to the resolution of a political crisis in the United Kingdom on a long-term basis", Macron said, adding that granting Britain a lengthy extension of the deadline for leaving the bloc was "not a certainty".

A no-deal scenario raises the question of how Ireland would retain seamless cross-border trade with British-governed Northern Ireland, with the frontier between the two becoming the only land border between Britain and the EU's single market.

He was speaking at a news conference after talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

Mr Varadkar said he would also discuss the Republic of Ireland's no-deal plans with Mr Macron.

"We have instead now this opportunity to develop a wholly fresh focus on the future, making it a place of transcendence, where multiple identities can be respected, be accommodated, can grow to become one community, gathered around the principles of the Good Friday Agreement and the European Union".

He reiterated that any long extension would involve the United Kingdom participating in the upcoming European Parliament elections.

Speaking ahead of talks with Varadkar, Macron noted that, "If the United Kingdom is not capable, nearly three years after the referendum, of coming forward with a solution that is supported by a majority, it will have effectively chosen a no-deal exit on its own".

Macron, a pro-European, wants to push forward with his own plans for European Union reform and is keen for Brexit not to overshadow all other concerns.

"That's why we have to examine what we can do in (a no-deal) scenario to avoid the emergence of a hard border".

The UK parliament has voted - again - to reject Theresa May's divorce deal from the EU.

Macron also warned Britain risked slipping into an automatic disorderly exit from the European Union if it did not resolve the impasse.

In his comments prior to the meeting, Mr Macron said France would never let Ireland down and said he was aware of the difficulties a no-deal Brexit would mean for Ireland.

But differences are emerging between the two sides as the possibility of a "no deal" Brexit looms, which would lead to the creation of a border between the United Kingdom territory of Northern Ireland and Ireland.

"We want to avoid a rolling extension - any extension must have a clear goal and plan". "However, there is still time for the prime minister to come to the European Council with proposals - proposals that are credible, and have a clear pathway to success", he said.
