This goes against the EU's backstop proposal which would see Northern Ireland treated as part of the EU customs union.
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will reaffirm her pledge to keep the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland open following Brexit, saying the notion of a hard border is "almost inconceivable".

Mr Davies, a pro-Leave campaigner, said he had lost faith in Mrs May's ability to deliver Brexit, adding: 'Failure to keep our promise to the electorate will nearly certainly lead to the catastrophe of Jeremy Corbyn becoming prime minister and I can not sit back and allow that to happen'.
Instead, she will say that she believes the close regulatory alignment on goods trade as described in her white paper, will meet her commitment to prevent the "inconceivable" eventuality of a hard border.
At the Irish border, business leaders have expressed concern that any division, even as a result of a soft Brexit, would have consequences.
"Our job is not to deal with Brexit in theory, but to make a success of it in practice for all of our people". In my view, it's take this seriously or we are heading for no deal.
Ms Leadsom added: It needs to be quite clear to the European Union, "you've got to come to the table and start negotiating with serious focus and concentration and goodwill because otherwise, we will be leaving with no deal".
