After Brexit, Paris and London entered into a heated dispute over fishing rights. They accuse the other of violating the Brexit trade agreement concluded late last year over fishing licenses in British waters. France accuses the United Kingdom of not granting sufficient fishing permits to French ships.

In addition, London is arguing with Brussels over the Northern Ireland protocol to the Brexit agreement. This stipulates that no customs controls should be implemented between Northern Ireland, which belongs to Great Britain, and Ireland, which is a member of the European Union, in order not to jeopardize the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.
