UK, France agree on new border security measures

UK, France agree on new border security measures

But in a country whose future relationship with Europe remains uncertain, others said the meeting - with its broad agenda on intelligence, security and migration - was a sign that despite Brexit, cooperation between France and Britain can survive.

The new treaty, set to be announced at the Franco-British summit at a United Kingdom military base later on Thursday, will "complete the Le Touquet accord", Macron's office said in reference to a 2003 deal that effectively put Britain's border in northern France.

The tough message risked putting a sour note at the end of a meeting created to show the strength of Anglo-French relations, despite the UK's exit from the EU.

Earlier this week, Mr Macron said he would not allow the shantytown to reappear in the city, but he did criticise the Dublin rules, calling instead for an "integrated" European Union system that would not force refugees to seek asylum in the first country they arrived in.

"They can have no differentiated access to the financial services. But it does not mean that the access it will allow will be equivalent to [being] a member of the Single Market". "But it means that you have to contribute to the budget and acknowledge European jurisdiction", he said.

Mrs May and Mr Macron enjoyed a Michelin-starred lunch at a Berkshire pub earlier in the day, while the Prime Minister - speaking partly in French at a reception at London's V&A museum on Thursday night - paid tribute to the large number of French nationals living in the UK. He also said that relations between France and Britain must not be diminished by Brexit.

One matter on which the two leaders are likely to have differing views however is the French President's desire to revisit the Le Touquet Accord on border controls.

Britain agreed Thursday to pay 44.5 million pounds ($62 million) for fences, security cameras and other measures in Calais and nearby English Channel ports.

They will provide logistical support to French forces attempting to bring stability to "ungoverned spaces" in the Sahel region of Africa where Islamist extremist groups like Islamic State and al-Qaeda have gained a foothold.

France and Britain, the two European nuclear powers, account for half of the defence spending in the EU.

He said France and Britain would continue to thrive together regardless of the Referendum result.

On Dec. 15, 2017, European Union leaders ruled that sufficient progress had been made in the first phase of Brexit talks, allowing negotiations to move on to discussions about Britain's future outside the bloc.

Britain will also commit to a "major" financial contribution as part of a "reinforcement of French-British police co-operation on border management", said the source. France will lend Britain the Bayeux Tapestry, an 11th century treasure that tells the tale of how William the Conqueror came to invade England in 1066, an official at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris said yesterday.

"Our shared history is reflected in the loan of the Bayeux Tapestry to the U.K.in 2022, the first time it will be on British soil in more than 900 years", May said on the loan agreement.
