Biden acknowledges poor communication with Paris - WH

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters during a briefing on Wednesday that the United States President Joe Biden acknowledged in the conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron that there could've been greater consultations with Paris on the AUKUS deal prior to its public announcement.

"During the conversation, the president reaffirmed the strategic importance of French and European engagement in the Indo-Pacific region, something that we look forward to continuing to work with them on," Psaki noted.

Additionally, the spokeswoman noted that the phone call lasted approximately 30 minutes and was carried out in a friendly tone, focusing on the future path of US-French relations.
