Mr. Johnson has said his government is bracing the country for the possibility of a no-deal Brexit amid dire warnings of backlogged customs and border checks, new tariffs on trade with Europe and the loss of clout that comes with being part of a 28-nation bloc.

He added that it is "at the core of the dispute between our countries".

Mr Donohoe said the appointment of Mr Johnson as Prime Minister had "added a new dynamic" to Brexit talks.

He wrote: "I wish to urge you to carefully consider a possible basic contradiction within the EU-UK Withdrawal Treaty which has so far prevented a majority of British MPs approving it in its present form".

"I explained to him why we have already explored many of these different options, why we believe they won't work and why we believe that an alignment of standards and regulations between Northern Ireland and Ireland is the best insurance policy for dealing with the risk of avoiding a hard border developing".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has prioritised securing global post-Brexit trade deals, in contrast to his predecessor Theresa May, whose own negotiating team was criticised in leaked documents by the Americans for failing to get the right people in the room.

"So, Brexit isn't a storm that we weather or a severe weather event that we prepare for, it is a permanent change in relations between the European Union, including Ireland, and the United Kingdom".

Top US exports are financial services and aircraft, while British exports include cars and tourism. He spoke as foreign secretary Dominic Raab visits North America to "fire up" the UK's trade relationship there.

"The US is our biggest trading partner and we have more than $1 trillion invested in each other's economies. We want to get formal talks moving quickly", she said.
