LONDON, Nov. 26 (Xinhua) -- The border between the Republic of Ireland and Britain's Northern Ireland became a major flashpoint Sunday with British Prime Minister Theresa May urged to change her Brexit plans to prevent a mounting crisis.
Phil Hogan, Ireland's European Union (EU) commissioner warned the border issue could derail May's hopes of agreeing a trade deal with the EU after Britain leaves the bloc.
The Observer newspaper in London said May had effectively been handed just days to give stronger guarantees over the border issue.
The newspaper said the threat of a hard Irish border has emerged as a major obstacle to May's aim of securing the green light for Brexit trade talks at a crucial summit only weeks away.
Hogan, who is the EU's agriculture commissioner ArDarius Stewart Womens Jersey , told the Observer that Britain remaining inside the EU's single market and customs union, or allowing Northern Ireland to do so, would end the standoff.
However, May and her Brexit ministers have insisted that Britain, including Northern Ireland Marcus Maye Womens Jersey , will leave the single market and customs union in March, 2019 when it ceases to be an EU member state.
Hogan warned in his interview that there was blind faith from some British ministers that Britain would secure a comprehensive Brexit free trade deal. He warned that Ireland would continue to play tough to the end over its threat to veto trade talks until it had guarantees over the border.
The Irish government has insisted on a written guarantee that there will be no hard border between the Republic and Northern Ireland.
Britain's International Trade Secretary Liam Fox told Sky News Sunday that a final decision on the border issue can not be made until a UK-EU trade deal has been agreed.
Fox said: "We don't want there to be a hard border, but the UK is going to be leaving the customs union and the (EU) single market."
Labour's shadow chancellor John McDonnell said he was concerned by Fox's comments, warning they could put talks ahead of the crucial December summit of EU leaders in jeopardy.
Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Barry Gardiner said in a Sunday television interview his party had not ruled out Britain staying in the EU single market and agreeing a new customs union with Brussels.
To add to the wrangle, the leader of the Democratic Unionist Party Arlene Foster expressed confidence at the party's annual conference in Belfast Saturday that May's government will not agree to any post-Brexit special status for Northern Ireland.
Foster was cheered as she told delegates: "We joined the then-European Community as one nation Jamal Adams Womens Jersey , will leave as one United Kingdom."
Currently, May's minority government is being propped up by the 10 DUP politicians at Westminster.
The EU has given May until Dec. 4 to come up with further proposals on issues including the Northern Ireland border, the Brexit divorce bill and citizens' rights. Proposals are being demanded by Brussels before European leaders agree to starting EU-UK talks on the future trading arrangements.

SANAA, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- At least six people were killed and dozens of others wounded when Saudi-led coalition warplanes separately hit two popular markets in Yemen on Saturday, residents and medics said.
One of the targets, Khalakah market, is located in Nehm district Leonard Williams Jersey , about 30 km northeast of the rebel-controlled capital Sanaa, where the airstrikes killed at least five people, injuring dozens of other shoppers, and burned three cars, according to a medic in Nehm district.
The medic told Xinhua by phone that the injured were more than 20. Residents said the market was very crowded at noon when the airstrikes hit.
The other targeted market is located in Zabid district south of the Red Sea port city of Hodeidah Jordan Jenkins Jersey , where one person was killed and more than 15 others injured, according to a provincial medic there, who also said the airstrikes took place at noon.
Many shops were destroyed in the attacks, the medic added.
Earlier in the day, Houthi-controlled Saba news agency and residents said another two airstrikes overnight targeted the headquarters of Yemen's state satellite television station in Sanaa Darron Lee Jersey , killing four journalists and injuring a bodyguard at the station's gate.
Residents said part of the TV building was destroyed.
These are the latest of a series of airstrikes by the Saudi-led military coalition fighting dominant Houthi rebels in a war of more than two and a half years.
The new wave of war escalation came six days after Houthis killed former President Ali Abdullah Saleh who had changed sides and backed the coalition.
The security situation has calmed after Houthis completely controlled the capital and defeated Saleh's armed supporters.
The capital's residents began gradually to crowd in the markets, streets, and state employees also went back to work in the ministries.
Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen's conflict in 2015 to back President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi whom the Houthis forced into exile in Saudi capital Riyadh.
The war has killed over 10,000 people, mostly civilians ArDarius Stewart Jersey , and displaced 3 million, according to UN agencies.
