The Defence Secretary, speaking from Salisbury Plain where a joint exercise comprising British and French forces was taking place, hailed the “growing partnership” of European nations on military operations.

Mr Fallon said UK military cooperated with their European neighbours on “every front”, including British and French pilots flying each other’s jets and both nations’ ship sailing alongside one another.

But he added: “Today we take that partnership to a new level.”

Describing the new Combined Joint Expeditionary Force (CJEF), a 5,000-strong rapid deployment Anglo-French force designed to respond to humanitarian crises as well as conventional conflicts, he said a “new chapter” had opened that would take cooperation between the two nations “to greater heights”.
