PARIS, France: French and Indian foreign affairs ministers Jean-Yves Le Drian and Subrahmanyam Jaishankar have agreed to work on a program to promote “a truly multilateral international order,” the French foreign ministry spokesman said on Saturday.

The ministry added that both countries will improve their strategic partnership “based on a relationship of political trust between two great sovereign nations of the Indo-Pacific.”

On Friday, after Australia cancelled a multi-billion-dollar agreement to purchase French submarines in favour of a partnership with the U.S. and the U.K., France recalled its ambassadors from Washington and Canberra.
