Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell says the the two big issues discussed between Joe Biden and Scott Morrison were China and climate change.

“The two leaders met, not in the Oval Office, where they will meet with Indian and Japanese leaders in the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue on Friday but on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly,” Mr Clennell said.

“At that gathering, there was a tense exchange between the European Council President Charles Michel and Scott Morrison where Michel seems to have a clear shot at the PM here over his treatment of the French on the subs deal.

“From the Prime Minister’s press conference this morning an acknowledgement that the decision has been difficult for the French but hopes negotiations with Europe over trade can carry on. These issues ‘aren’t on the same track’, the PM says,” Mr Clennell said.

Mr Clennell said, “Scott Morrison also confirming that neither the US nor Australia is looking for a war.”
