France and Britain announce anti-terror action plan

Kenny Thornton | 21 June, 2017, 23:22

After talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May in Paris on Tuesday, Macron said the door for Britain to remain a member of the European Union would remain open "until the Brexit negotiations come to an end".

"I confirmed to President Macron that the timetable for negotiations remains on course and will begin next week", she said.

But he said he acknowledged and respected that a decision to leave had been taken by the British people.

But he stressed that "once the negotiations have started, we should be well aware that it will be more hard to move backwards".

Speaking in the gardens of the Élysée Palace in Paris in a joint press conference with Theresa May, the newly elected French leader said the decision to leave the European Union could still be reversed if the United Kingdom wished to do so.

"We have made a decision to go further on a concrete plan to reinforce the obligation of social media companies to remove content that promotes hate and terrorism online".

May arrived in Paris with her leadership hobbled by a catastrophic election last week just as Britain heads into tough talks on leaving the EU.

Americans comprise about a fifth of all non-Chinese tourists to North Korea , tour operators say. The route to inflicting significant economic pain on Kim's government remains through China.

Macron said he raised the issue but said the king gave him no "reason to fear renewed repression" and said the king instead appears committed to a "long-term response to the deep causes" of the conflict.

Mrs May said last week's General Election revealed "a unity of purpose" among British voters for the Government to get on with Brexit.

Technology companies such as Google and Facebook must do more to curb the "poisonous propaganda" that fuels terror attacks such as the atrocities in London and Manchester, the prime minister has said, launching a UK-French pact to explore new ways to curb the spread of online hate. After their talks, the two leaders will watch a France-England football match at the Stade de France that will honor victims of extremist attacks in both countries.

The police were given wider search and arrest powers after Islamist gunmen and suicide bombers killed 130 people in and around Paris in November 2015.

On that occasion, the London crowd joined in with the singing of the French anthem, "La Marseillaise", which was also played before English Premier League games the following weekend.

Macron and his wife are to attend an iftar meal, to break the fast of Ramadan, at the king's personal resident, and the French president will spend the night in Rabat before flying back home Thursday.

May said that she intends to work with Macron and the social media and technology companies to automatically remove content deemed by London and Paris as "extremist".
