France pulls out of defense meeting with UK in protest at AUKUS submarine deal Updated: 2021-09-20 17:33:09 KST

France called off a bilateral defense meeting with the UK set for this week, after Australia pulled out of a submarine deal made with Paris in favor of one with Washington and London.
Australia announced Thursday that as part of the new "AUKUS" defense pact, it would be building eight nuclear-powered subs supported by the U.S. and Britain, rather than building conventional ones with France.
According to the French foreign minister, a relationship of trust had been breached because Australia had not clarified it wanted out of the deal with Paris.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison claims to have expressed concerns over the contract for months and only acted in the country's best interests.
