France announces a “serious crisis” with its allies

France accused Australia and the United States of lying, and accused Britain of opportunism in the issue of the nuclear submarine contract that Australia was supposed to buy from France.
“The recall of our ambassadors from Washington and Canberra reflects a deep crisis,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.
He added: “What happened in the submarine issue will affect the future of NATO.”
France had described the agreement between the United States and Australia to build US nuclear submarines for the Australian army, and to cancel the $40 billion contract with France, as a betrayal and a stab in the back.
