Submarine litigation: French company wants to bill Australia for collapsed business

Controversy over submarine: French company wants to send bill to Australia for stalled business

In a heated submarine dispute between France, the United States and Australia, the French Naval Group intends to submit a “detailed and calculated proposal” to the Australian state at the cost of canceling the agreed delivery of submarines.

The company’s president, Pierre-Eric Palmet, told French newspaper Le Figaro that Australia would receive an invoice “within a few weeks”. “Australia terminated the treaty for convenience, which means we are not responsible,” he said.

“This is a contract issue and requires payment of costs already incurred and future costs,” Baumelier told the newspaper. These include, for example, the cost of ‘redundancy of infrastructure and information technology’ and ‘pooling of employees’. “We will claim our rights,” Baumlet reiterated.

As US President Joe Biden and French head of state Emmanuel Macron try to get closer, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Macron has treated him with a cold so far.

Morrison said on a visit to Washington on Wednesday evening that he tried to contact Macron, but “it hasn’t happened yet.” “We will be patient and understand your disappointment,” he said, referring to the failed submarine deal between the two countries.

Biden and Macron are trying to relax

Meanwhile, President Biden and Macron agreed in a telephone conversation between their governments, the White House, and Elysee to have “intense consultations” announced in a joint statement.
