French President Emmanuel Macron and US Leader Joe Biden have scheduled a telephone conversation to discuss the crisis in relations between the two countries. This was announced by the official representative of the French government Gabriel Attal, reports Le Figaro.
According to Attal, US President Joe Biden was the initiator of the telephone conversation. A telephone connection between the two presidents is scheduled for the near future.
Macron believes that the negotiations will be an opportunity to "move forward" in the crisis situation that has arisen between the countries due to the submarine scandal. In this case, Macron will ask Biden for an explanation.
Attal also said France experienced shock and "legitimate anger" following Australia's rejection of its submarine contract with France. But now the government wants to move forward with its partners.
In addition, it is reported that Paris will negotiate with Australia on compensation, given the breach of contract.
France previously announced that it was withdrawing its ambassadors to the United States and Australia for consultations in protest against their security pact, which also includes the UK.
Later, the French Foreign Ministry announced a crisis in relations with the United States.
