PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron said on Thursday France was ready for a no-deal should Britain refuse to agree to conditions for a future relationship that would preserve French fishermen’s rights in British waters and non-dumping rules.
“In no case shall our fishermen be sacrificed for Brexit,” Macron told reporters as he arrived at a summit of EU leaders in Brussels.
“If these conditions are not met, it’s possible we won’t have a deal. If the right terms can’t be found at the end of these discussions, we’re ready for a no-deal for our future relations,” he added.
