SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Tuesday said any trade talks with the European Union will be worked through in “the weeks and months ahead” as he deals with fallout of the decision to cancel a $40 billion submarine deal with France.

Morrison, who was in New York to meet with Quad Group leaders said, “It’s difficult to do, and to get an agreement avec the European Union on Trade, I think everybody understands that.”

Australia announced last week that it had cancelled its French order for a fleet conventional submarines. It said instead it would build eight submarines powered by nuclear technology using U.S.- and British technology. This prompted France to recall its diplomats in Australia and the U.S.
