“If you spend years negotiating a contract, and then a few months later do the opposite of what was decided in the areas that are the least suitable for you, that is not a good sign for credibility, Macron told the “Financial Times”. on Friday.
Paris and London have been embroiled in a heated dispute over fishing rights following Britain’s exit from the European Union. They accuse each other of violating the Brexit trade deal concluded late last year on fishing licenses in British waters. France accused Britain of not allowing French ships to catch enough fish.
In addition, London is debating with Brussels the Northern Ireland Protocol to the Brexit Agreement. It provides that no customs controls are exercised between Northern Ireland, which belongs to Great Britain, and EU member Ireland, so as not to jeopardize the Good Friday Agreement of 1998. Instead, control should be between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. However, critics agree that it forms a de facto border within the UK and is plagued by supplies to Northern Ireland.
