Jean-Yves Le Drian, French Foreign Minister, accused that Joe Biden, president of the United States, has a way of acting similar to his predecessor Donald Trump. This after an alliance with Australia was announced, which involves breaking an important contract for the sale of French submarines.
“This unilateral, brutal, unpredictable decision is very similar to what President Trump did … Our position is one of great firmness, of misunderstanding and of requesting explanations and clarifications from each other,” said Jean-Yves Le Drian,
Because it is important? The minister, in an interview with the France Info station, warned that this will have consequences because it is not an act that takes place between allies.RELATED
What was said? It is a defense alliance in the Indo-Pacific region between the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, in which the latter announced the cancellation of a contract for the purchase of French conventional submarines, estimated at about 56 billion euros, for replace it with another US nuclear submarine.
In addition, the French Foreign Minister considered the action as “a blow to the back” of Australia that “has betrayed the relationship of trust” that had been established between the two countries, because in 2019 they had already established the conditions and deadlines. for the delivery of the first submarine in 2023.
