"Of course the door remains open, always open until the Brexit negotiations come to an end", the President said, when asked if Britain could yet stay in the EU.

The two leaders were meeting in Paris for a working dinner before attending an worldwide friendly football match between France and England at the Stade de France stadium.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has reassured French President Emmanuel Macron that the Brexit talks scheduled to start on June 19 will not be delayed.

Intriguingly, Mr Macron's comments came just hours after Wolfgang Schäuble, the powerful German finance minister, sent out an identical message - saying the United Kingdom would find "open doors" in Brussels if it decided not to leave the EU.

"I think there is a unity of objective among people in the United Kingdom", May said following her meeting with Macron.

"Of course the door is always open as long as the negotiations on Brexit have not finished", Macron said in a press conference.

He added: "That being said, a sovereign decision was taken by the British people and that is to come out of the European Union and I very much respect the decisions taken by the people, be it by the French people or the British people".

"But let us be clear ... once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more hard to move backwards".

PM: The UK and France are united in our total condemnation of terrorism and our commitment to stamp out this evil.

May's team will resume talks with Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) on a deal to secure their support in parliament after the 60-year-old leader failed to win an outright majority in last week's election - a vote she called expecting to strengthen her position.

May said the process would lead to "an arrangement for Brexit which will be the interests of the United Kingdom and the remaining 27 members of the European Union".

The two leaders agreed on an initiative to pressure tech companies to abide by their social responsibility of tackling online extremism and to create "a new legal liability for tech companies if they fail to remove unacceptable content".
