Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden to Reaffirm Ties With France’s Macron Amid Australia Submarine Pact” – below is their description.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said France was aware of Australia’s concerns on the capability of submarines being built by the European nation, defending his government’s decision to sign a new deal for nuclear-powered ones.

Australia understands France’s disappointment but the decision was made on “sovereign, national defense interests,” Morrison told reporters on Sunday. It would have been “negligent” to not opt for submarines with supreme capabilities, he said.
