France rejects UK-announced fishing conditions

Paris, May 7 (Prensa Latina) French Foreign Trade Minister Franck Riester said that his country firmly rejects the fishing conditions set by British authorities on the island of Jersey, although he advocated reducing tensions.

‘We will be intransigent, the law is very clear,’ the official told Sud Radio, describing the new decisions as harmful to French fishermen as well as null and void.

In one of the post-Brexit consequences, which even led to the two countries sending warships to the zone around the island of Jersey, a semi-autonomous territory belonging to the United Kingdom, London denied the fishing license to several French vessels, established limitations for the use of nets and banned sea bream fishing in certain areas.

Dozens of fishermen gathered in protest in the vicinity of the island, located in the English Channel, very close to the coast of France, where they have carried out their activities for decades.

Tensions arising between Paris and London as a result of the BrExit led the French Maritime Minister, Annick Girardin, to threaten retaliation, without ruling out those related to the electricity service, supplied by submarine cables to the UK.
