Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Joe Biden calls Scott Morrison 'that fella Down Under' during AUKUS nuclear submarine announcement

It's one of the most significant strategic and defence moves in decades, cementing Australia's alliance with the US and the UK for years to come.

But as Prime Minister Scott Morrison joined the UK's leader Boris Johnson and Joe Biden for a virtual announcement, the US President raised a few eyebrows in Australia.

"Thank you Boris," he said to the UK Prime Minister who had dialled in via video from London.

Then Mr Biden turned to the other screen showing Mr Morrison who had joined from Canberra.

'And I want to thank that, uh, fellow Down Under," he said.
