In what is set to be the first meeting of its kind in five years, French President Emmanuel Macron will host British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in Paris for a bilateral summit at the Elysée Palace in early March.

According to the Elysée Palace in a statement this Wednesday, French President Emmanuel Macron has invited UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to Paris on 10 March for a bilateral summit, as the two countries seek to revive their ties after recent tensions.

“It will be an opportunity for the two leaders to deepen cooperation … in a range of areas, including security, climate and energy, the economy, migration, youth and foreign policy”, the French presidency said.

Relations between France and Britain have come under stress in recent years, in particular since Britain offically left the European Union in January 2021.

The countries have often traded blame for an array of problems, including fishing disputes and the failure to stem a flow of clandestine migrants across the English Channel.
