Britain said on Thursday that France’s threat to block British boats from entering its ports in a fishing dispute appears to violate international law, and the government pledged to respond if Paris went ahead with the move..

This comes as France announced on Wednesday that it will prevent British fishing boats from entering some French ports, starting next week, if no agreement is reached with the United Kingdom in a dispute over fishing licenses.

It also hinted that it might restrict power supplies to the Channel Islands, which are part of the British Crown, which lie off the coast of France..

tension flares up

It is noteworthy that since the United Kingdom left the economic orbit of the European Union at the beginning of the year, relations between London and Paris have become increasingly strained.

Opposing the post-Brexit deal

She also noted that the restrictions are inconsistent with the post-Brexit agreement, which the British government signed when it left the European Union.

But after weeks of negotiations, British authorities have issued more fishing permits, but the number is still only 50 percent of what France believes it is “entitled to”, said French government spokesman Gabriel Attal.
