Trade talks between Australia and the European Union have been postponed as a row with France over the so-called Aukus security partnership deepens. Last month, Canberra cancelled a 37 billion dollar deal with France to build a fleet of conventional submarines. Instead, it will build at least eight nuclear-powered submarines with US and UK technology. The decision angered Paris, which called the deal a stab in the back by the US and Australia.
