France And UK Work Through Border Issues In Summit

The tapestry has had a purpose-built home since 1983 having once been kept at Bayeux Cathedral

In response to Mr Macron's comments, the Prime Minister - who has rejected the Norway/Canada choice - repeated her position that Britain would leave the EU's single market after Brexit.

The announcement came as UK Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron held a bilateral summit meant to strengthen their security and intelligence ties as Britain negotiates its exit from the European Union.

The tough message risked putting a sour note at the end of a meeting created to show the strength of Anglo-French relations, despite the UK's exit from the EU.

Hundreds of migrants remain in the area, with police routinely breaking up makeshift camps of people hoping to head to Britain, a favoured destination for Afghans and east Africans.

France will lend Britain the Bayeux Tapestry, an 11th century treasure that tells the tale of how William the Conqueror came to invade England in 1066, an official at the presidential Elysee Palace in Paris said yesterday. "But it means that you have to contribute to the budget and acknowledge European jurisdiction", he said.

The two leaders held a private "working lunch" at a pub in May's parliamentary constituency of Maidenhead, west of London, Macron said on Twitter.

Currently, British border checks are carried out at Calais under the 2003 Le Touquet Agreement between the two countries.

Orthodox believers celebrate Epiphany
Although Putin has taken the Epiphany Bath before, this was the first time he has publicly done so, Peskov said . Peskov said that this year, temperature was not as extreme as it gets during this time of year in the area.

Theresa May will use the decision, which has involved lengthy talks between each country's respective culture departments, to highlight the strength in UK-French relations following Brexit.

"Everything is being done to prevent illegal crossings", Macron said, saying Calais must not be used as an "entry door" to Britain.

The meeting - which will focus on defense, security cooperation and economic ties, among other issues - is Macron's first presidential visit to the United Kingdom, and comes on the heels of news that the British government will pay France £44.5 million for the continued policing of the border at Channel ports.

Britain is offering helicopters to help transport French troops deployed in the Sahel to fight Islamist terror networks - a welcome addition for France's military, which is undergoing spending cuts, said analyst Sophia Besch of analyst group the Center for European Reform.

Determined not to allow Brexit tensions to chill the mood, President Macron offered Prime Minister May a cultural olive branch: the loan of the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry.

In a boost to Macron, Britain is throwing its backing behind the European Intervention Initiative, a multinational European military force that the French president has proposed.

The Elysee official said the loan fitted into Macron's strategy for the revival of European sovereignty and democracy, detailed in a speech in Athens in September past year during which he spoke about the importance of cultural and historic ties between European nations. When it comes to Europe, these two countries are pulling in radically different directions.
