Macron regrets to Morrison the breakdown of the “relationship of trust” between France and Australia

MADRID (EUROPA PRESS) .- The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, had their first telephone conversation on Thursday since the outbreak of the submarine crisis, to which the French president has expressly alluded to to regret that the “relationship of trust” between the two countries has been broken.

France called its ambassadors in the United States and Australia for consultations as a result of the agreement that these two countries signed with the United Kingdom – baptized as the AUKUS alliance – since it meant that the Australian side broke a millionaire agreement to acquire manufactured submarines gala.

It was a “unilateral decision”, as Macron recalled, which gives rise to “another project yet to be finalized.” “The relationship of trust between our two countries was broken,” the French president emphasized, according to a statement released by his office.
