Row Between France, US And Australia Intensifies – As Paris Recalls Ambassadors
A row between France, the US and Australia is intensifying – as Paris recalls its ambassadors to the countries.
It’s over the security deal announced earlier this week, which also includes the UK, to help Australia acquire submarines.
It ended multi-billion pound talks with France – the country called it a “stab in the back”
Sky’s security and defence editor, Deborah Haynes, says it’s an unusual move for allies:
“It underlines the absolute fury being felt in Paris at this deal between the US, the UK and Australia. Rivals like China and Russia will be be watching this with glee, because when Western allies are disunited, it works in their favour.”
