Paris recalls its Australia, US envoys - Le Drian

France has recalled its ambassadors to the United States and to Australia for consultations, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian (pictured) announced in a statement published on Friday.

He explained that the country's president, Emmanuel Macron, made such a decision due to the "exceptional seriousness" of the two countries' deal on the procurement of nuclear-powered submarines despite Australia's previous arrangements with Paris.

Le Drian himself described Washington's and Canberra's actions as "unacceptable behavior."
