      British PM Theresa May stepped up last week attempts to get European support for a draft Brexit deal as negotiations on securing a smooth divorce with the EU enter final stage, news wires reported. Less than five months before Britain is due to leave the EU, a deal is 95% done. But officials have repeatedly cautioned they are still haggling over the fate of the land border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland. May told her cabinet last Tuesday that more time was needed to clear the final hurdle and ensure no hard border emerges on the island of Ireland.
