The French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, withdrew the invitation to Calais from his British counterpart after the publication of a letter, which he described as a “disappointment”, “worse still” for having been published after the death of 27 migrants in a shipwreck while trying to reach the United Kingdom.

The ministers responsible for immigration from Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and the European Commission are invited to the meeting, several days after the tragedy that has once again put Calais and its surroundings in the focus of migratory tensions in Europe.

In the letter, which the Tory leader posted on his Twitter account, Johnson details the five steps he would like to see to “move forward faster and faster” in this crisis and avoid repeating a tragedy like the one that happened this Wednesday, when 27 migrants lost their lives drowned when trying to access this country in a precarious boat.

In parallel to the migratory crisis, France and the United Kingdom have other open negotiations on limiting fishing licenses to French workers by London, which had prompted Paris to give Johnson an ultimatum, but after weeks of discussions they have not reached an agreement.
