France’s Ambassador to Australia Jean-Pierre Thebault says it “remains to be seen” if the two countries can be “friends again” as he prepares to make his way back to Canberra.

Mr Thebault was initially recalled to Paris in the wake of the Commonwealth government scrapping its $90 billion deal with Naval Group in favour of US nuclear-powered submarines.

He was, however, told to return to Australia to “redefine the relationship” between the two nations as well as putting an end to the submarine deal.
