(CNN) -- British Prime Minister Theresa May and Brexit secretary David Davis will meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Brussels early Friday, according to Downing Street. Mina Andreeva, Juncker's deputy spokeswoman, said the meeting will likely happen around 7:00 a.m. local time (1:00 a.m. ET) and be followed by a press conference. London and Brussels have been engaged in intense negotiations over securing an agreement from the European Union that "sufficient progress" has been made on the UK's withdrawal ahead of an EU leaders summit on December 14. Parties came close to a deal earlier this week but it fell through after May's coalition partners, the far-right Democratic Unionist Party, rejected proposed arrangements for Northern Ireland.
