LONDON / PARIS (dpa-AFX) – In the dispute between London and Paris over fishing licenses in the English Channel, negotiations are to be continued for the time being. Another escalation was averted when Paris initially suspended an ultimatum for punitive measures set for Tuesday.

The EU Commission said on Tuesday that a video meeting organized by Brussels on Monday had enabled a roadmap for how to proceed in various aspects. The talks, in which high-ranking EU officials, France, Great Britain and the Channel Islands Jersey and Guernsey participate, should therefore continue on Tuesday and in the coming days.

Meanwhile, reports of a British fishing trawler arrested by France in the port of Le Havre caused confusion. Despite reports to the contrary, it had not yet been released on Tuesday. The ship will continue to be held in the port of the French city of Le Havre, said a Johnson’s spokesman in London on Tuesday. Britain’s Environment Minister George Eustice had previously said that he assumed that the cutter had since been released.

The fixing of the cutter was initially interpreted as part of a tougher pace on the French side. However, the BBC reported, citing UK government officials, that the operation was considered a routine operation unrelated to the dispute over fishing licenses. At the request of the German Press Agency, there was initially no comment from the French authorities on Tuesday./cmy/DP/he
