Australia and France argue over submarines

Australia and France are not as close friends anymore. Thats because Australia has failed to meet an important appointment. France is angry about that.

The fight is about submarines. Australia wanted to buy submarines for the military. France would make it. The country would get 30 billion euros for that. That was the deal.

But all of a sudden, Australia said they dont want the submarines anymore and theyre going to work with the United States. France is angry about that. French politicians dont understand that Australia suddenly wants to buy submarines elsewhere.


Australian Prime Minister Morrison is now trying to call French President Macron to speak out the fight, but so far it hasnt worked out. The French Prime Minister is not answering.

Yet the countries hope they will come out together. They have been friends for years and they usually work very well together.
