Sky News published this video item, entitled “Aukus pact: Reaction from France and China” – below is their description.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has admitted at a defence fair in London that if he were French he would be extremely disappointed over the Australian decision to axe diesel electric-submarines and switch to the UK and US technology for nuclear submarine propulsion.

The initiative announced this week will focus on helping the Australian navy procure a multi-billion-pound fleet of nuclear-powered submarines amid growing concerns over China.

Sky’s Deborah Haynes got to speak to him.
