The new agreement will enable Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines

France has decided to recall its ambassadors to the United States and Australia for consultations, in protest against the signing of the “Ocos” security agreement.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the “exceptional gravity” of the situation justified the “exceptional decision”.

Under the Okos agreement, Australia will receive technology to build nuclear-powered submarines from the United States and Britain.

The agreement infuriated France, as Australia withdrew from a multi-billion-dollar deal it had signed with Paris.
