US, French Foreign Ministers to hold talks on October 5: Reports

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 02 Oct 2021, 11:04 pm

Moscow/Sputnik: French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will hold talks with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday, media said.

The meeting will focus on the "restoration of confidence" between the two allies, after Australia canceled a submarine contract with France in favor of a deal with the US and the UK, Les Echos daily reported.

Blinken will travel to Paris from October 4-6 to chair the OECD ministerial council meeting from October 5-6 and commemorate the organization’s 60th anniversary.

France was blindsided last month by the announcement of a US-UK-Australian security pact that will see it lose a multi-billion dollar submarine contract.

Le Drian called the cancellation of Australia’s deal with France a "stab in the back."
