A fierce diplomatic row is heating up within the Western alliance. France has recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia after Canberra scrapped a major French submarine purchase in favor of nuclear-powered subs built with US technology. France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the cancellation of the contract was "unacceptable behavior between allies and partners."

France is set to lose 31 billion euros on the submarines and says it expects compensation.
