France has decided to recall its ambassadors to the United States and Australia for consultations after Canberra scrapped a deal to acquire French-designed submarines and decided instead to invest in U.S. nuclear-powered submarines.

It is the first time in the history of France that such a decision was taken vis-a-vis these two countries, according to French media.
