France says 'crisis' in its relationship with U.S., Australia

France is in a "serious crisis" with the United States and Australia after Canberra cancelled a multibillion-dollar submarine order, French Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told France 2 television on Saturday.

France said on Friday it was recalling its ambassadors from both countries over a trilateral security deal also involving Britain which sank the submarine contract with Paris.

Le Drian also said President Emmanuel Macron had not spoken with U.S. President Joe Biden about the submarine issue.
