‘This is simply as a short term blip’

Robert Clark, defence policy associate at the Henry Jackson Society, says France’s actions in response to the #AUKUS trilateral defence agreement are just ‘a short term diplomatic spat.’

France has taken the dramatic step of recalling its ambassadors to the United States and Australia in the worsening row over their nuclear submarine deal.

French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the “exceptional decision” was justified by the “exceptional gravity” of the actions of the two Western allies.
