Ex-French ambassador takes swipe at Blinken after submarine snub - The Hill
Former French Ambassador Gérard Araud took a swipe at U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken Thursday after he said France was still a "vital partner" amid the fallout from a new western security alliance.  

Blinken's comment was an attempt to ease France's anger after the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom established a nsecurity partnership that excluded France, and scrapped a $40 billion security deal between Australia and France.

"We are deeply moved..." the former ambassador sarcastically wrote on Twitter after the Agence France-Presse, a French news agency, tweeted Blinken's statement.
