British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has extended an olive branch to French compatriot, Emmanuel Macron after France lost a multi-billion dollar deal in the Australia submarine feud, SurgeZirc UK reports.

The Prime Minister reiterated Britain’s commitment to maintaining a diplomatically robust relationship with France despite the recent trade debacle between the two countries.

The French had branded Boris an American lapdog in outrage following the outcome of a deal that could have earned them millions, but the Prime Minister insists that the bond between both countries remains ineradicable despite recent misunderstandings.

France had been positioning to sell the Aussies £47 billion worth of diesel-powered subs before the Australian government backtracked and opted for nuclear boats from Britain and America.

President Emmanuel Macron went into a verbal outburst reacting to claims that he cut off diplomatic ties with Washington and Canberra, while his ministers continued to hurl rants at Britain.

Playing down the verbal tirades from the French, Johnson said: “I don’t think anyone needs to worry… particularly not our French friends.”

The Prime Minister’s comments came on the heels of chastisements from top French political functionaries who accused Britain of “stabbing an ally in the back.”

French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who is slated to spearhead talks with the UK at the United Nations General Assembly in New York this week had slammed Boris Johnson, dubbing him a “permanent opportunist”.

France Europe Minister, Clement Beune, firing tirades of his own said: “Our British friends explained to us they were leaving the EU to create Global Britain. We can see that this is a return into the American lap and form of accepted vacillation.”

However, despite being berated repeatedly by France in recent publications, Boris Johnson said the relationship between France and Britain remains “ineradicable.”
