France expects the U.K. to agree to take more asylum seekers and pay more for border security in order to maintain a frontier on the French side of the English Channel, a French government official said.

The U.K.'s border was extended into France under a 2003 bilateral treaty known as the Treaty of Le Touquet. But a migration crisis and the Brexit vote to leave the European Union have made the arrangement an increasing source of friction.

The deal will be on the table Thursday when President Emmanuel Macron holds talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May at an Anglo-French summit in southern England.
