French President Emmanuel Macron and President Joe Biden will hold a phone call in the next few days “to move forward” following the fallout from the announcement of the AUKUS deal according to a French government spokesperson. CNN’s Jim Bittermann reports.
Boris Johnson has sought to reassure France over Britain's 'Aukus' military alliance with the US and Australia, after officials in Paris suggested the UK was a lapdog to Joe Biden's administration.
The prime minister said the deal was "not intended to adversarial or exclusionary", and added, "we stand shoulder to shoulder with France in so many important ways". Report by Buseld. Like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/itn and follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/itn
Fareed Zakaria says that President Joe Biden’s approach to foreign policy looks more like Donald Trump’s than Barack Obama’s and warns that if Biden continues this tact, he risks normalizing Trump’s “America First” foreign policy.
