France, Britain to announce new migrant treaty

PARIS: French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May will announce a new treaty on how to handle migrants hoping to head to Britain, the French presidency said Wednesday.

The treaty, set to be announced at a summit in London on Thursday, will “complete the Le Touquet accord,” Macron’s office said in reference to a 2003 deal that effectively put Britain’s border in northern France.

The details are “still being finalized,” the French presidency said, but the treaty will include measures on how to manage unaccompanied minors, and Britain will make a “major” financial contribution.
