LONDON [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/carson-wentz-jersey/]Carson Wentz Eagles Jersey[/url] , Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Britain's departure from the European Union should not prevent a high level of cooperation with France, President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday at the end of a British-French summit.
The French president and British Prime Minister Theresa May both spoke after a day of talks and negotiations during which a series of agreements and memorandums of understanding were signed covering a wide range of topics from defense to culture.
Speaking at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, where the summit took place, Macros said he respected the Brexit decision by the British public but regretted it. He also said Britain could not have the same level of access to areas such as financial services once it left the EU.
He said he is not aiming to punish Britain [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/clayton-thorson-jersey/]Clayton Thorson Eagles Jersey[/url] , adding: "The choice is on the British side. If you want access to the single market, be my guest."
There may be some difficulties in the short term but the relationship will remain deep between the two close neighbors, Macron said.
May said she believed it is in the interest of both Britain and the EU to continue to have a good economic partnership with Britain.
"We will be looking for a deep and special partnership for the future," she said [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/shareef-miller-jersey/]Shareef Miller Eagles Jersey[/url] , referring to the upcoming negotiations with Brussels on a future trading relationship.
Both sides agreed to British-funded improvements to border security along the French coast at Calais to deter migrants' intent on reaching Britain.
The British government is reported to be paying around 60 million U.S. dollars for enhance border controls on French soil.
An agreement was signed, Macron said to enable the famous Bayeux Tapestry to leave France for the first time in almost 1,000 years on loan for exhibition in Britain in 2022.
"It is fragile and has never traveled abroad in nearly 1,000 years [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/jj-arcega-whiteside-jersey/]JJ Arcega-Whiteside Eagles Jersey[/url] ," said the president, adding: "Our shared history is reflected in the loan of the Bayeux." He said the loan forms part of a wider cultural exchange between Britain and France over the next four years.
May said the relationship between Britain and France has always gone beyond defense and security, saying both sides had agreed to build on existing ties.
"After Brexit we will remain steadfast allies. We are Europe's two foremost military powers. We've agreed that UK-France cooperation remains critical to European defense," added May.
Macron and May started a hectic working day with a lunch in a traditional 17th century pub before heading to Sandhurst where they inspected a guard of honor by the Coldstream Guards as the French national anthem rang out.
Downing Street said in a statement later that the two countries are the only European powers with the ability and political will to deploy and sustain significant military force.
Measures agreed between the two sides today include an agreement by Macron to further French support to the Britain-led enhanced Forward Presence battlegroup in Estonia.
Britain [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/miles-sanders-jersey/]Miles Sanders Eagles Jersey[/url] , meanwhile, agreed to deploy RAF Chinook helicopters to Mali to provide logistical support the French counter-terrorism mission.
A Britain-France Defense Ministerial Council is to be created as a permanent and regular forum in which defense cooperation can be discussed by the respective defense ministers.
There was also agreement on the two countries continuing defense research. Britain and France committed to working more closely on research and innovation across sectors including artificial intelligence, space and climate change.
Britain's Energy Minister Richard Harrington, meanwhile [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/andre-dillard-jersey/]Andre Dillard Eagles Jersey[/url] , signed an agreement for the two countries to work more closely on civil nuclear decommissioning.
US Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Israel on Sunday for a visit that will see him warmly welcomed by Israeli leaders but snubbed by the Palestinians, deeply angered by the White House's Jerusalem policy.
The visit, initially scheduled for December before being postponed, is the final leg of a trip that has included talks in Egypt and Jordan as well as a stop at a US military facility near the Syrian border.

Controversy back home over a budget dispute that has led to a US government shutdown has trailed Pence [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/brian-dawkins-jersey/]Brian Dawkins Youth Jersey[/url] , and he sought to blame Democrats for the impasse during a speech to troops at the military facility on Sunday.
Arab outrage over President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Dec 6 had prompted the cancellation of several planned meetings ahead of Pence's tour.
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas is refusing to meet Pence because of the declaration, making his visit a rare one by a high-ranking US official not to include talks with the Palestinians.
He will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday before addressing the country's parliament later in the day - a speech that Israeli Arab lawmakers will boycott, calling Pence "dangerous and messianic".
On Tuesday, the devout Christian will visit Jerusalem's Western Wall [url=http://www.cheapeaglesjerseysshop.com/isaac-seumalo-jersey/]Isaac Seumalo Youth Jersey[/url] , one of the holiest sites in Judaism. Trump became the first sitting US president to visit the site when he travelled to Jerusalem in May 2017.
The site is located in east Jerusalem, occupied by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed in a move never recognised by the international community.
The city's status is perhaps the most sensitive in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the Palestinians' reaction to Trump's recognition was an illustration of the importance placed upon it.
Beyond refusing to meet Pence, Abbas has
