British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicolas Sarkozy signed two landmark defence treaties at a summit in London on Tuesday.

"Today we open a new chapter," Cameron told a joint press conference with the French leader at a Foreign Office mansion in central London, adding: "Britain and France are natural partners."

Under the deal, the two countries will create a joint military force and share aircraft carriers and nuclear test facilities.
