Paris ‘open to talks' on fishing rights if London ‘respects UK's obligations,' French PM says, as British trawler detained

In an ongoing spat with the UK over fishing rights, France is “open to talks,” but only if London respects its post-Brexit obligations, PM Jean Castex has said, in the wake of French officials detaining a British trawler.
“We are always open for talks - morning, afternoon, and evening,” Castex told journalists during a trip to the coastal region of Morbihan, in Brittany, on Thursday. Saying that “the British should respect their obligations,” the prime minister also noted that the relevant commitments had been confirmed in writing, and had to be fulfilled.
“We will ensure that our interests are respected and that the word given is respected,” Castex said.
