Macron: UK Must Pay into EU Budget After Brexit to Access Markets

FRANCE-BRITAIN-IMMIGRATION-CALAIS

"On the common border in Calais, we have seen the shortcomings of the current situation".

After talks with UK PM Theresa May at Sandhurst military academy, he said the treaty would offer a "more humane approach" and be "more efficient".

May was more subdued, stopping short of using the word "treaty". "Did borrowing the Bayeux Tapestry cost Britain 45 million pounds more to stop migrants at Calais", the Daily Mail asked, while the Sun mocked up the depiction of how William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066 as a tale of the European Union trying to stop Britain leaving the bloc.

From Calais, many try to jump on trucks and trains going under the Channel into Britain, just 30kmaway.

There may be some difficulties in the short term but the relationship will remain deep between the two close neighbours, Macron said. He said it was a border between two countries and they needed to manage it together.

Calais has always been a sore point in French-British relations, and Macron on Wednesday called for better cooperation in managing the border with Britain ahead of his first trip to London as president. Britain eventually took in 769 children, with France giving asylum to 893.

It would mean the time taken to process migrants hoping to come to the United Kingdom from Calais, would be reduced from six months to one month for adults and 25 days for children.

Trump says border wall stance has not 'evolved,' Mexico will pay
Kelly instead explained that the US need only construct "700 more miles of barrier" and that "concrete wall would be good in only certain places".

On Brexit, asked how Britain could change the mind of the European Union and its apparent refusal to include financial services in a deal, Ms May swerved the question. May pledged to spend an extra $61 million on security at the Calais border crossing, while Macron vowed to speed up migrant processing at that border.

At the meeting with May, Macron is expected to push for a new "additional protocol" to supplement the Le Touquet treaty, that would involve Britain paying more to France for border security and accepting more asylum seekers. Brexit Secretary David Davis has said he wants a "Canada plus plus plus" deal.

The Sun tabloid created its own "Bye-EU Tapestry", charting Britain's victorious exit from the European Union. Nigel Farage, the former leader of the far-right U.K. Independence Party, called the agreement a "humiliating capitulation".

The French-British summit comes just days after Macron said he would defend the economic interests of Calais and northern France, including the key fishing and logistics industries, during the Brexit talks focusing on trade, which are to begin in March.

"It's really important and evidence that both sides take very seriously the bilateral relationship", said Georgina Wright, a researcher in the Europe Program at Chatham House, a think tank.

THERESA May and Emmanuel Macron re-enacted Ellen DeGeneres' famous Oscars selfie as she tweeted a cheesy message about her summit with the French leader yesterday.

But asked about the EU's refusal to negotiate trade access for British financial services outside the single market, Mr Macron said: "The choice is on the British side, not on my side".
