EU ministers voice 'solidarity' with France on submarine deal, Borrell says

"The ministers expressed clear solidarity with France. This announcement ran counter to calls for greater cooperation with the European Union in the Indo-Pacific," Borrell told reporters after EU ministers met on the sidelines of the United Nations.
