French diplomat criticizes Australia's pullout from sub deal

French Ambassador to Australia Jean-Pierre Thebault (pictured) condemned on Saturday Canberra's decision to pull out of the 2016 submarine deal with Paris.

"I think this has been a huge mistake, a very, very bad handling of the partnership - because it wasn't a contract, it was a partnership that was supposed to be based on trust, mutual understanding, and sincerity," Thebault asserted.

Both Australia and the United States expressed "regret" regarding France's recall of its ambassadors.
