WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Thursday in New York, the U.S. State Department said, and discussed plans for ‘in-depth bilateral consultations’ after Washington and Paris plunged into a diplomatic crisis last week over a submarine deal.

France was incensed by Australia’s decision last week to opt instead for a deal with the United States and Britain to purchase nuclear-powered submarines, and it recalled its ambassadors to Washington and Canberra for consultations.
