Press briefing by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Spokesperson (excerpts)


Paris, 27 October 2017


UK – Meeting between Jean-Yves le Drian and Boris Johnson (Paris, 27 October 2017)

This evening Jean-Yves Le Drian will host a working dinner for his British counterpart, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Boris Johnson.

The two ministers will discuss the most critical international issues, including the situation in the Middle East, Africa, North Korea, Burma/Myanmar and Venezuela. France and the United Kingdom enjoy especially close and regular cooperation on all major international issues, on which we largely see eye to eye.

M. Le Drian and Mr Johnson will also review our bilateral relationship, which is both close-knit and highly strategic. Among the topics to be discussed is the follow-up given to the Lancaster House treaties, which deal with our cooperation on defence and security. Finally, they will make preparations for the Franco-British summit scheduled for early 2018. (…)./.
