The Suez Canal, originally built by the French, became a joint Franco-British project in 1875, as both saw it as essential to maintaining their influence and empires in Asia.  In 1882, persistent unrest in Egypt (see Urabi revolt) prompted Britain to intervene and gave a hand to France. French Prime Minister Jules Ferry was no longer in office and the government was unwilling to send more than one intimidating fleet to the region. Britain built a protectorate, as France had done in Tunisia a year earlier, and French public opinion then blamed this action on doublespeak.  At that time, the two nations founded the co-ownership of Vanuatu. The Anglo-French Convention of 1882 was also signed to resolve territorial disputes in West Africa. Through the Entente Cordiale, Britain and France justified the beginning of an alliance and promised to give each other their diplomatic support to obtain the execution of the clauses of this declaration concerning Egypt and Morocco. The Agreement, however, ceased to require both nations to rely militarily; this aspect of the alliance would come later. The agreement was ratified by the French and British parliaments in October 2016 and provides for the opening of eight centres of excellence.   New agreement reached today by the Minister of the Interior and her French counterpart to combat migration activities in the English Channel.
The deal means that undocumented migrants who are denied access to the UK remain in France, many in temporary camps. Up to 700 migrants are present in the area, although the camp known as the “jungle” was dismantled in 2016. England and Normandy were now in the hands of the two brothers Henry and Robert. In July 1101, Robert launched an attack on England from Normandy. It successfully landed in Portsmouth and headed for Alton, Hampshire. It was there that he and Heinrich agreed to accept the status quo of territorial division. Henry was released from his homage to Robert and agreed to pay the duke an annual sum (which he only paid until 1103).  The French president stressed that the new border agreement is a bilateral agreement separate from any EU divorce agreement, which aims to address the immigration crisis, as hundreds of people continue to camp in Calais.
7. The British and French militaries accounted for half of the EU`s defence spending and two-thirds for research and development. For example, what was the impact of leaving the EU on Franco-British defence policy by allowing a possible security agreement? Today`s agreement is an important moment for both our countries, where we are strengthening our joint actions to combat illegal immigration. . . .
