France would "look kindly" upon the UK if Brexit is canceled, French President Emmanuel Macron told French reporters today (Jan. 18) in Paris.

Macron is the third leader in recent days to suggest that Brexit could be canceled, following on from comments made by President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.

Macron made the comments just hours before heading to the UK for this week's Anglo-French summit with Prime Minister Theresa May.

Macron has already hinted at the possibility of a reversed Brexit when the two leaders met in June last year. Then, he said the "door remains open" to the UK staying in the EU, although noted that this would become more difficult as negotiations progressed.

UK could still remain

Macron's suggestion comes two days after Tusk said "we want [the UK] to stay," and that a British "change of heart" is still possible. Referencing the secretary of state for exiting the European Union, Tusk asked, "Wasn't it David Davis himself who said if a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy?"

Juncker went even further than his counterpart, suggesting that the UK could use Article 49 of the Lisbon Treaty to rejoin the EU after Brexit. “I would like us now to treat each other with respect and not abandon each other,” Juncker said at the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The comments will boost Remainers' hopes of a second referendum, although this has been ruled out by both Labour and the Conservative parties.

Migration and military cooperation

This week's summit will focus on migration and shared defense responsibilities.

Already, May has pledged extra money to improve border security at the Channel border. The money will be spent on fencing, CCTV, and infrared detection technology at Calais and elsewhere. The UK is also expected to commit to taking more migrants from Calais, especially unaccompanied children.

The UK will send three Chinook helicopters to Mali to assist French efforts to combat Islamists there, while French troops will be sent to reinforce British troops stationed in Estonia to guard against Russian aggression, according to the BBC.

The Independent has reported that May is also expected to announce British participation in Macron's planned European Intervention Initiative, which will improve coordination between European armies.

In a goodwill gesture, Macron will announce the historic loan [VIDEO] of the Bayeux Tapestry to the UK. The Tapestry -- depicting the events surrounding William the Conqueror's 1066 invasion of England -- has never left French shores since it was made in the 1070s.
