This is reported by BFMTV with reference to the representative of the French Cabinet of Ministers Gabriel Attal.

He noted that during the conversation, the parties intend to clarify under what conditions Australia's decision on submarines was made.

The aggravation of relations between France and the United States came after Australia entered into a partnership with the United Kingdom and the United States in the field of defense and security AUKUS and announced its withdrawal from the submarine agreement with the French company Naval Group. 

On September 17, France recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia to Paris for consultations due to the creation of the AUKUS alliance.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called the decision to terminate the contract a stab in the back.
