Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Johnson Renews U.K. Ties With France After Australia Submarine Spat” – below is their description.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says the U.K.’s relationship with france is ‘indestructible.’
He spoke Monday at the U.N.
“Our relationship with France is incredibly important, it is historic, it goes back a long, long time and it is is founded on shared values, a shared belief in democracy. We work together around the world,” said Johnson.
France canceled meetings with British and Australian officials and is trying to rally EU allies behind its push for more European sovereignty after being humiliated by major Pacific defense pact orchestrated by the U.S.
Australia and Britain insisted Monday that the diplomatic crisis wouldn’t affect their longer-term relations with France, which is seething over a surprise, strategic submarine deal involving the U.S., Australia and Britain that sank a rival French submarine contract.
France recalled its ambassadors to the U.S. and Australia for the first time because of the deal, and its anger is showing few signs of subsiding.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
