Towards a way out of the crisis? French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson decided on Sunday October 31 to work on “practical measures” in “the next few days” to favor “a de-escalation” in the conflict over fishing between France and the United Kingdom, announced the Elysee.
This is to ensure that “practical and operational measures be taken as quickly as possible to avoid a rise in tension”, explained the French presidency after a meeting between the two leaders in Rome. An update will be made on Tuesday on the implementation or not of retaliatory measures by Paris, said the same source.
France criticizes the United Kingdom for granting too few post-Brexit licenses to its fishermen. She promised, for lack of improvement, to ban on Tuesday British fishing vessels from unloading their cargo in French ports and to strengthen customs controls on trucks.
