Following the recall of its ambassadors in the U.S. and Australia for consultations, France is responding to the Australia-US-UK partnership by deepening its strategic partnership with India.

The French Foreign Ministry stated that the two countries’ foreign ministers, Jean-Yves Le Drian and Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, had a phone conversation during which they agreed on France-India bilateral cooperation in a program to promote “a truly multilateral international order”.

They also agreed to deepen their strategic co-operation based on “a relationship of political trust between two major Indo-Pacific sovereign states,” the ministry said.

It is recalled that France has already recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia over cancellation of a multibillion-euro deal to supply the Australian navy with French nuclear submarines, which France has called a “stab in the back.”
