Fixing ties with France will take hard work - Blinken

United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken said repairing the relationship with France "will take time and hard work and will be demonstrated not only in words but in deeds." His remarks came amid a diplomatic crisis that started when Australia abandoned a €56 billion submarine deal with France for an agreement with the US and the United Kingdom.

Blinken added he is "committed to working closely on this crucial effort" with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. The French diplomat echoed Blinken's words, saying that "getting out of the crisis we are experiencing will take time and will require action."
