Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “France Fumes Over Australia’s Nuclear Submarine Deal With U.S., U.K.” – below is their description.

France’s top diplomat unleashed a stream of invective against President Joe Biden after the U.S. and the U.K. announced a new security alliance for the Pacific region that will cost the French defense industry some A$90 billion ($65.7 billion).

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France Info Thursday that he felt “stabbed in the back” over the “unacceptable” deal that will hurt French business and shuts the French military out of a key initiative in Western efforts to build a bulwark against China.
