The dossier states that their government now considers "no deal" in light of the Prime Minister's call to repeal Irish border regulation as "most likely".

Sajid Javid will fly to Berlin today for his first personal talks on Brexit with his counterpart Olaf Scholz, according to the German media.

German officials expect Johnson to use the G7 summit in Biarritz to create a "big moment" for a breakthrough.

At the meeting in southern France, he will meet EU leaders for the first time, including Mrs. Merkel and Emmanuel Macron.

"Stay on the track"

The document, which was leaked to the German Handelsblatt, states: "In view of this, it is important from the EU's point of view to stick to the previous line."

It is also feared that there would be no majority in Parliament even if the EU agreed to lift the backlog.

Berlin officials warned Mr Johnson that he is unlikely to withdraw his claims, which means that member states should vote for No Deal.

They state that the German preparations are "largely completed" and that no further measures at EU level have to be announced in order to mitigate the effects.

The dossier states that an additional burden on the country's customs systems can be addressed through "flexible workforce planning" and "IT-based optimization".

Ms Merkel insisted she continue to pursue a "close partnership" with Great Britain following the discussion on Brexit with new Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.
