The UK and France will remain "tied by bonds of friendship" for decades after Brexit, Jeremy Hunt has said.

Axar.az reports citing Western media that the foreign secretary lauded the cross-channel relationship as "one of competition, co-operation, similarity and difference" in a speech in Paris.

Officials said the visit was aimed at showing the friendship between the two nations was "bigger than Brexit".

But there are warnings intelligence-sharing may be damaged if a framework is not set up to mitigate the risks.

A report by an Anglo-French task force whose members include former Nato Secretary General Lord Robertson and ex-French Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has said co-operation in cyber security and counter-terrorism could be imperilled if the UK leaves in March without an overarching agreement.

The Brexit process is at a critical phase amid reports Theresa May may seek the approval of her cabinet within days to sign up to an agreement on the terms of the UK's' withdrawal.
