‘I Know It‘: France‘s Macron 100% Sure Australian PM Lied About Submarine Deal
“I don‘t think. I know,“ Macron told a journalist at the sidelines of G20 on Sunday, when asked if Morrison had a tongue in his cheek regarding the submarines. “I just say when we have respect, you have to be true and you have to behave in line and consistent with this value,” he added.
“I was very clear that the conventional submarines were not going to be able to meet our strategic interests and we were going to have to make a decision in our national interest,” Morrison said.
“I was under the impression that France had been informed long before … honest to God I did not know you had not been,” Biden told Macron face to face ahead of the G-20 summit in Rome, admitting that the overall events were done in a “clumsy“ manner.
