But he did claim the United Kingdom will secure a bespoke trade deal, although only in the context of preserving the bloc's single market.

The announcement came as U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron held a bilateral summit Thursday meant to strengthen security and intelligence ties between the neighboring nations, and to build goodwill as Britain negotiates its exit from the European Union. It is possible that these relations are closer than in a simple trade deal, but the United Kingdom will not be able to choose how much access it will have on the European Union single market.

"But there is not cherry picking in the single market".

And Macron renewed his warning that the United Kingdom would not be able to get full access to the Single Market without paying in money and accepting freedom of movement on Brexit.

The preconditions Britain would have to accept would include freedom of movement, budget contributions and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, according to Mr Macron.

"This special way should be consistent with the preservation of the single market", said the French president.

He said: "I am not the one to judge or comment on the decision of your people".

CALAIS, France -President Emmanuel Macron vowed on Tuesday that France would not allow another migrant camp like the infamous "Jungle" to spring up in the port of Calais.

Speaking to BBC's Andrew Marr, Macron said Trump is not a "classical politician"; he also criticised the U.S. president's alleged comments about African countries and called for respectful relationships.

Mr Macron has insisted the bloc is in need of reform and vowed to make it one of his main areas of focus, laying out plans for a Europe-wide finance minister as part of a process of deeper integration.

Mr Macron said he believed the Brexit vote mainly came from the middle and working classes, and older people, who "decided that the recent decade was not in their favour".

"I think the City of London will continue to be a major global financial centre".

Mrs May praised the "uniquely close relationship" between the two nations. The UK also announced an extra £44.5m to be spent on beefing up Channel border security.
