France has published a list of sanctions it could impose from November 2 unless progress is made in an ongoing post-Brexit fishing row with the UK. The measures include closing ports to British vessels, and tighter border checks.

The proposed restrictions list was unveiled late Wednesday by France’s Maritime and European Affairs ministries in a joint statement.

“We’re announcing retaliatory measures to protect our fishermen, starting November 2. The dialogue remains open but we will always defend our interests,” French European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune said. (RT)
