A defence treaty between France and the UK may see the Royal Air Force’s fighter jets being allowed to fly from France’s Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.

The treaty is likely to be signed during a meeting between UK Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy in London as part of their first bilateral summit.

France will reconfigure the Charles de Gaulle carrier so that it can carry the new Joint Strike Fighter jets the UK will acquire at the end of the decade, according to the Financial Times.
