France and Britain announce anti-terror action plan

France and Britain announce anti-terror action plan

Macron meanwhile said that "the door is obviously still open" should Britain change its mind about leaving the European Union, but that it was a decision for the British people.

After their talks, May and Macron watched a football friendly between England and France where a minute's silence was held before kick-off to remember the victims of recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.

Ms May quashed reports that the beginning of Brexit negotiations, scheduled for next Monday, June 19th, might be postponed following her June 8th election debacle.

Mrs May's authority has been severely diminished after a disastrous general election which saw her lose her House of Commons majority.

The "badly timed" wave was one of a series of gaffes and embarrassing moments on the PM's short visit, which also included her speech notes flying off half way through a state address and several affectionate looking photos of the two state leaders.

Before kick-off the French Republican Guard's band and choir performed the Oasis hit "Don't Look Back in Anger", which became something of an anthem of steadfastness after the Manchester attack.

May has been holding talks with Macron in Paris.

As a singer dressed in uniform and playing a guitar started singing, the pockets of England fans joined in, some with their arms raised.

French president Emmanuel Macron has claimed the door to the European Union will remain open to Britain during Brexit negotiations that get underway next week.

Echoing some of the rhetoric from British ministers about the need to allow the security services to access encrypted messages, Mr Macron said the intelligence agencies must be able to access digital content "no matter where it is located".

PARIS, June 13 French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that the door of the European Union remains open to the United Kingdom as long as negotiations for Britain to leave the EU are not concluded, but it would be hard to walk back once negotiations start.

The campaign includes exploring the possibility of legal penalties against tech companies if they fail to take the necessary action to remove unacceptable content, May said. Macron's office said the leaders will discuss ways to boost anti-terrorism efforts both bilaterally and on a European level.

May and Macron said the initiative would try to work out a way to encourage companies like Facebook and Google, the owner of YouTube, to quickly find and rapidly remove extremist materials.

Another eight people, including three French nationals, were also murdered in a terror attack in London on June 3.
