Britain and France at odds in fishing dispute

UK, France clash over fishing row. Macron, Johnson meet in Rome.

The Facts

British PM Boris Johnson and French President Emanuel Macron stuck to opposing positions when they met on Sunday to discuss the post-Brexit fishing dispute.

The two leaders held a bilateral during the G20 summit in Rome but failed to resolve the issue.

France claimed that fishing vessels had been denied permits to fish in the English channel, while Britain maintained that it had permitted 98% of EU vessels to fish in UK waters.

Paris has also threatened to bar British boats from some of its ports and tighten regulations for trucks carrying UK boats if French vessels are not licensed to ship in UK waters by Tuesday.

UK’s Brexit minister David Frost said that the UK had been “actively considering launching dispute settlement proceedings.”
