French Prime Minister Jean Castex asked the U.K. to do more to deter migrants from crossing the Channel, in a letter to Boris Johnson.

The letter sent on Wednesday evening should be seen an invitation to start a constructive discussion that includes the European Union, and not a blame game, an official in Castex’s office said, asking not to be identified to comply with government rules. France hasn’t received a response from the U.K. just yet.
