BrExit High on Agenda for Emmanuel Macron's Visit to Britain

Sky News

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, will make his first presidential visit to Britain when he meets Theresa May for talks later this month, Downing Street has said, The Guardian reports.

The British prime minister will seek to use the 35th UK-France summit – to be held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on 18 January – to project an enduring strength of relations between the two countries despite Britain’s decision to leave the EU.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, May said: ''France is one of the UK’s oldest and closest allies and our partnership is one that we both rely on''.

While such events traditionally focus on defence and security co-operation and foreign policy matters, British officials said the talks would be broadened to cover the “full spectrum” of bilateral issues, including education, science and innovation.

Nevertheless, following the decision last month of EU leaders to green light the second phase of the BrExit talks, Britain’s impending withdrawal from the bloc is likely to feature prominently in their discussions.
