Britain, France Announce Joint Campaign Against Online Radicalisation

British Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron held talks Tuesday from opposite sides of the Brexit front line and agreed that negotiations for Britain's divorce from the European bloc will start next week as planned.

Paris. The French president, Emmanuel Macron, has claimed the door to the European Union will remain open to Britain during Brexit negotiations that get underway next week, writes The Guardian.

Both May and Macron paid tribute to the French victims of the London Bridge attack and the pair laid a wreath at the Stade de France on Tuesday night at the half-time of the England versus France friendly match to honour both French and British victims of recent terror attacks.

Macron, by contrast, looks set to gain a massive majority next Sunday in the second round of elections to the French National Assembly, just over a month after winning the presidency.

May stressed that she would stick to her timetable of starting Brexit discussions next week in Brussels, saying the talks were "on course" despite her domestic difficulties.

Mrs May, on her first overseas visit since losing her Commons majority, claimed her government could still represent a "unity of purpose" on Britain's behalf.

May has been holding talks with Macron in Paris.

The Prime Minister's office says France and the United Kingdom will work with tech companies to help curb terrorist content online and develop tools to "identify and remove harmful material automatically".

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that the door to the European Union remains open to the United Kingdom as long as exit negotiations are not concluded, but it would be hard to walk back once negotiations start.

"That being said a sovereign decision was taken by the British people and that is to come out of the European Union and I very much respect the decisions taken by the people, be it by the French people or the British people".

It includes exploring the creation of new laws that would impose penalties on internet companies if they failed to act.

On May 22, a man detonated a bomb as crowds were leaving an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, killing 22 people.

As part of this plan, social media companies will be pressed to do more.

French president Emmanuel Macron and British prime minister Theresa May have threatened to make internet corporations legally liable for the use of social media by jihadists.

"We now have strong and stable leadership - but in France, not Britain", the Financial Times said in a commentary, echoing the "strong and stable" mantra of May's election campaign.
