European Union leaders were converging on Brussels Wednesday for what had been billed as a “moment of truth” Brexit summit, but which now holds little promise for a breakthrough.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is set to urge her counterparts to give ground on Britain’s departure from the bloc, while EU leaders hope she brings “concrete proposals” to break the deadlock.

EU Council President Donald Tusk has told May that “creative” thinking from Britain is required to avoid a hard border between EU member Ireland and the U.K’s Northern Ireland, the issue that has brought divorce talks to a standstill.

Britain leaves the EU on March 29, but a deal must be sealed soon .
