The announcement comes amid tensions between the two countries over the number of licenses issued to French fishermen after Brexit in the Anglo-Norman Islands. Despite involving a small number of actors, the fishing issue was one of the post-Brexit frictions between France and England.
“France’s threats are disappointing and disproportionate and do not match what one would expect from a close ally and partner,” British government spokesman Brexit Foreign Secretary David Frost was quoted as saying in a tweet.
Frost denounced the “lack of official communication from the French government in this regard.”
In response to possible French actions, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson previously indicated that there was “no formal contact” with the French government on the matter.
“It is important to highlight that 98% of fishing licenses have been issued,” the Prime Minister added.
