After Australia signed the Aukus pact to build nuclear powered submarines, France defence minister cancelled talks with her UK counterpart. This security deal between UK , US and Australia caused Florence Parly’s meeting with UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace in London to be called off. UK PM Boris Johnson said France has nothing to worry about concerning this deal made. French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian has described this situation as a “stab in the back” that amounts to “unacceptable behaviour between allies and partners”.
