The French Foreign Minister has hit back over Australia’s decision to cancel its submarine deal. 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday announced a trilateral partnership with the UK and US, which will deliver Australia a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines.

In light of the new deal, Australia scrapped its existing $90 billion contract with French shipbuilder Naval Group, which France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian yesterday described as “a stab in the back”.

This morning France has cancelled a gala in Washington celebrating its US alliance in protest.
