US President Joe Biden and french President Emmanuel Macron have spoken for the first time since a diplomatic spat over the formation of the AUKUS alliance

The AUKUS alliance will see the US, Britain and Australia team up with Australia scrapping a major submarine deal with France in favour of receiving America’s state-of-the-art nuclear sub technology.

In what was a 30-minute phone call, Biden acknowledged the missteps in how his administration approached the diplomatic issue.

In a joint statement, the leaders “agreed that the situation would have benefitted from open consultations among allies on matters of strategic interest to France and European partners.”

“President Biden conveyed his ongoing commitment in that regard”.
