PARIS (Reuters) - France and the European Commission are determined to ensure that Britain respects its post-Brexit arrangements and agreements on fishing licences following the UK's departure from the European Union, said France's prime minister on Monday.

Jean Castex said he had discussed the dispute over Brexit and fishing arrangements with Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo, who said he would visit Britain next week for talks on the matter.

France says Britain should have issued more French boats with licences to fish in British territorial waters since Britain left the European Union. Britain says it is respecting the arrangements that were agreed.
