Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says the decision “is justified by the exceptional seriousness of the announcements” made by Australia and the United States.

France has said it will immediately call its ambassadors to the United States and Australia for consultations after the two countries and Britain signed an agreement that ended a contract for a French-designed submarine.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a statement on Friday that the decision, at the request of President Emmanuel Macron, “is justified by the exceptional seriousness of the announcements” made by Australia and the United States.

He said Australia’s cancellation of the contract to buy French conventional submarines in favor of nuclear-powered submarines built on US technology is “unacceptable behavior.”
