On Friday, a step was undertaken to end years of wrangle in the post-Brexit era wherein Britain will pay France around $577 million over three years to stop migrants travelling in small boats across the Channel.

French President Emmanuel Macron and British PM Rishi Sunak at a summit designed to re- build ties, agreed to work together more closely, reported by a source. Macron mentioned in a joint news conference that the relations had been strained by Britain’s departure from the European Union. Further, Sunak stated that the time had come for a new relationship referring to the Entente Cordiale of the early 20th century that had smoothed the diplomatic relations between the European powerhouses. The two are planning to jointly work towards nuclear energy cooperation and vowed to make the inteoperability of their military forces strong which further include development of future missiles and air defence systems. They also reaffirmed their backing for Ukraine. Although Sunak was concerned about migration since he aims to tout the deal which is another achievement after agreeing the new terms with Brussels on Northern Ireland in February. He has further developed small boats since October after the number of migrants arriving on the south coast of England rose to more than 45,000 last year which is equivalent to 500% in the last two years.

New legislation has been recommended by him to bar those who arrive in small boats from asylum. Although to successfully acquire this, he would require the cooperation of France to intercept the boats.
