France is calling back ambassadors from the USA and Australia

This extraordinary step is happening at the request of President Emmanuel Macron (43), said Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian (74) on Friday evening in Paris. The decision to abandon the purchase of French submarines, which was sealed in 2016, in favor of a partnership with the United States and Great Britain, represents an unacceptable behavior between allies and partners. The consequences touched the core of France’s alliances and partnerships as well as the importance of the Indo-Pacific for Europe.

Australia announced on Thursday that it would acquire nuclear-powered submarines as part of a new security alliance with the United States and Great Britain. France had already reacted very angrily and spoke of destroyed trust with Australia.
