‘Lies and treason’: France could suspend military co-operation and trade talks

France’s ambassador to Australia Jean-Pierre Thebault is on his way back to Paris.

MORRISON GIVES THE FRENCH THE FINGER

Recalled ambassador to Australia Jean-Pierre Thebault, speaking to The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age hours before leaving Canberra for Paris, said Australia had engaged in “lies and treason” for 18 months behind his nation’s back. He said there was an “intentional breach of trust” and “when something serious happens between two countries, really serious, there is a need for reassessment, and obviously consultation at high levels”. “For us clearly, such a decision announced without any prior consultation – not just a phone call, but real consultation due to the scope of the consequences – marks a real breach of trust,” he said. Mr Macron’s decision to recall US ambassador Philippe Etienne to Paris for consultations was the first time that action had been taken in the history of their alliance, which dates back to 1778
