France, Britain to sign nuclear deals, talk Syria

PARIS - France and Britain will agree a series of deals on civil nuclear cooperation and developing a next-generation combat drone when their two leaders meet on Friday for the first time since an acrimonious clash over Europe.
The annual Franco-British summit was postponed in December at the height of the euro zone crisis, but the two leaders look set to put on a show of unity as they try to coordinate their position on international issues ranging from Syria to Iran.
"Today's summit shows the strength and depth of Britain's ties with France," Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement. "One year on from the Libya uprising, we are working together to stand up to the murderous Syrian regime and to stop a nuclear weapon in the hands of Iran."
