May's office said Northern Ireland's five main parties would take part, but a spokesman for the DUP did not immediately respond to a request to confirm their participation.

The date of the Queen's Speech was not relevant to the talks, Dodds was quoted as saying.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the opposition Labour Party, which saw its number seats and share of the vote increase, said there could be another election this year or early in 2018 after last Thursday's vote produced no clear victor.

Both the Conservative Party and the DUP were now focused on finalising the "terms and conditions" of the deal following a meeting between May and DUP leader Arlene Foster on Tuesday, the DUP source told the channel.

"I congratulate her on returning and I'm sure she'll agree with me that democracy is a wondrous thing, and can throw up some very unexpected results", he said.

The first round of Brexit talks will begin two days before a meeting of European Union leaders in Brussels on 22 and 23 June.

'It's going to be hard, there's no doubt about that, but perhaps an opportunity to consult more widely with the other parties on how best we can achieve it, ' Cameron was reported by the FT as saying at a conference in Poland on Tuesday. The European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, struck a harsher tone: Britain, he said, could change its mind, but it would be poorer.

But pressure was mounting for May to change course on the type of Brexit Britain should pursue.

"Look at what the Tories (Conservatives) have managed to do to the United Kingdom in the space of just one year, firstly calling a divisive and reckless European Union referendum. then having lost that gamble pursuing a hard Brexit path", Scotland's first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said.

Later, May will hold talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, including looking at ways to tackle online radicalisation and terrorism.

The Conservatives, who have 317 MPs, are looking to strike a deal with the DUP, who have 10.

If the Government cannot even secure a deal with the DUP, how on Earth can they get a deal with the EU?

In an attempt to fight back over repeated reports over the Northern Ireland right-wing party's views on social issues, the party hopes to form a deal with the Conservatives.

The DUP is believed to be more favorable to a "soft Brexit" that would keep Northern Ireland's border with the Republic of Ireland free-flowing.
