BREAKING NEWS: France RECALLS its ambassador to the US amid row over new US-UK-Australia pact










In a stunning break with the United States’ oldest ally, France has recalled its ambassador to the US after a blowup over a new pact between the US, Great Britain, and Australia.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves LeDrain announced the move Friday night, saying it came in a request from French President Francois Macron. He cited the ‘exceptional seriousness of the announcements’ – which caught France off guard and resulted in the cancelation of multi-billion dollar contracts for Australia to build and purchase French diesel submarines for its defense.
