The fallout from the AUKUS submarine deal has followed Prime Minister Scott Morrison to the Glasgow climate conference.
Mr Morrison has detailed conversations in a bid to prove French President Emmanuel Macron was not blindsided by the decision to scrap the $90 billion submarine deal Australia had with France.
There are also reports today that President Joe Biden’s officials knew the timeline on how the French would be told – despite him making comments to the contrary on Sunday.
“What happened was, to use an English phrase, what we did was clumsy, was not done with a lot of grace,” President Biden said.
“I was under the impression that France had been informed long before that the deal was not going through, I honestly did not know you had not been.”
