France calls for 'rapid solution' on UK fishing row

French State Secretary for European Affairs Clement Beaune stated on Tuesday that Paris needs a "rapid solution" to the dispute it currently has with the United Kingdom in regards to its fishermen's rights.

"France remains open to dialogue, but a quick solution must be found for our fishermen, in the application of our agreements," he tweeted after his meeting with British Task Force Europe Chief Negotiator David Frost.

France recently decided to delay imposing sanctions on the UK despite threatening to do so after the latter limited access to its territorial waters to fishermen from the European Union.
