The hill: Kerry: Biden “was not fully aware” of the impact of the submarine deal on France
President Biden “was not fully aware” of the negative impact a US submarine deal between the UK and Australia has had on France after it was announced, according to John Kerry, presidential special climate envoy.
“He literally was unaware of what had happened,” Kerry said in an interview with French broadcaster BFMTV that aired Monday.
France was outraged last month after the Biden administration revealed a submarine deal between the governments of the US, UK and Australia, which set aside a separate $ 40 billion submarine deal that France closed with Australia in 2016.
