UK and France ‘still friends’ af­ter Brexit

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

The UK and France will re­main “tied by bonds of friend­ship” for decades af­ter Brexit, Jeremy Hunt has said.

The for­eign sec­re­tary lauded the cross-chan­nel re­la­tion­ship as “one of com­pe­ti­tion, co-oper­a­tion, sim­i­lar­ity and dif­fer­ence” in a speech in Paris.

Of­fi­cials said the visit was aimed at show­ing the friend­ship be­tween the two na­tions was “big­ger than Brexit”.

But there are warn­ings in­tel­li­gence­shar­ing may be dam­aged if a frame­work is not set up to mit­i­gate the risks.
