Theresa May says there is a “shared determination” among EU leaders to solve the Irish border problem preventing MPs from backing her deal.
She was speaking after meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom says there can be no deal without a backstop plan for the Irish border.
But she said she was seeking guarantees that it would be “only temporary” to address the concerns of her own MPs.
But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn labelled Mrs May the “runaway prime minister” and said her trip was a “waste of time and public money”.
The prime minister is now in Brussels for meetings with top EU officials Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker.
