Britain settles dispute with France and withdraws ships from Jersey

has settled a dispute with over changes to fishing regulations and is returning its warships from the island of Jersey. This is reported by the BBC.

Two Royal Navy ships are preparing to return home after the end of a protest by French fishermen about post- rights in Jersey territorial waters. The UK government said “the situation has been resolved for now” but they “remain on standby ” to help Jersey.

French fishermen claim that their rights are unfairly restricted by licenses issued under the new Channel Islands system.

The UK said it had agreed with the Jersey government that one of the Royal Navy’s offshore patrol vessels would return to port on Thursday evening and the rest on Friday morning.

” We are pleased that the French fishing boats have left the Jersey area, ” said Jan Horst, Jersey’s Foreign minister.

The United Kingdom sent two Royal Navy patrol boats to the British island of Jersey, in the English Channel. This is how London reacted to France’s statements about a possible power outage on the island due to a dispute overfishing in the region. In turn, sent two patrol boats to Jersey.
