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.

Whether there is any reason for optimism will not become apparent until Thursday at the earliest, when the British Brexit Minister David Frost is expected to hold talks with the French Secretary of State for Europe Clément Beaune in Paris.

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 French authorities on Tuesday./cmy/DP/jha
