Britain Summons The French Ambassador

Britain summoned the French ambassador on Thursday over a dispute between the two countries over fishing rights, Reuters reported.

French Prime Minister Jean Castix has said his country is ready to hold talks with Britain to resolve the dispute over fishing rights, as long as London fulfills its obligations under the post-Brexit agreements.
After France announced that it would prevent British fishing boats from entering some French ports from next week, if no agreement was reached with the United Kingdom over the dispute over fishing licenses, Castex said his country was “always open to talks morning, noon and evening, as long as Britain is honors its obligations.”
Earlier on Thursday, France detained a British fishing vessel that entered its territorial waters without a license, and issued a verbal warning to a second vessel.
Uk had said earlier that the punitive measures that France intends to impose would be met with appropriate measures of its kind.

France was angered by Britain’s refusal to grant its fishermen the full number of licenses to fish in British waters that France says it is guaranteed under the “Brexit” agreement, and announced on Wednesday its intention to take retaliatory measures if there is no progress in talks in this regard.
