On Twitter, Durman welcomed the end of a “historic deal” last evening, stressing that the UK was committed to paying .7 62.7 million to fight illegal cross-border immigration.
Noting the importance of taking “extra and urgent” measures in conjunction with the continued increase in attempts to cross the canal, Paris and London agreed to “strengthen their cooperation in this area to prevent risks from the status quo” despite existing measures.
The new measures include doubling the number of police and gendarmerie stationed on the French coast, deploying technologies and surveillance vehicles over a wider area, investing in immigration support centers across France and, where appropriate, voluntarily integrating immigrants into Native countries. .
