France recalls US and Australian ambassadors after canceling submarine deal

French Foreign Minister Le Drian called the breaking of the contract for the supply of submarines to Australia and the creation of a new AUKUS bloc "unacceptable behavior between allies and partners."

France immediately recalls its ambassadors from the United States and Australia for consultations amid the canberra's termination of a multibillion-dollar contract with Paris for the supply of French submarines. This was stated by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Friday, September 17,- DW reports.

"This exceptional decision is due to the extreme seriousness of the decisions announced on September 15 by Australia and the United States," the French Foreign Minister said in a communiqué.

The relations between the United States and the European Union are weakening day by day. This process began during Donald Trump's rule. When Biden came to power he declared that he would strengthen relations with Europe but apparently the close relations would not return as it had in the past. And the main reasons for this situation: Britain's exit from the EU, the EU is interested in good relations with China and especially in the economic field, the United States leaves Afghanistan without informing the European Union, the AUKUS agreement and others.
