The United States recognizes that reconciliation with France after the submarine crisis "will take time" and "actions" on the part of Washington, said on Thursday the head of US diplomacy, Anthony Blinken.

"We recognize that this will take time and a lot of work and translates not only into statements but also into deeds," Mr Blinken told a news conference on the sidelines of the 76th UN General Assembly in New York.

Referring to the "cooperation and coordination" that the presidents of the two states, Joe Biden and Emanuel Macron, pledged to deepen during their telephone conversation on Wednesday, the US Secretary of State assured that the two allies can "do more" and "better".

He emphasized the need to focus on France, and especially on the Indo-Pacific region, following Washington's announcement of a security agreement with Australia and the United Kingdom, known by the acronym AUKUS, which was the trigger for the crisis.

Anthony Blinken made this statement after the meeting he had privately on Thursday morning with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Lentrian. "We have been friends for a long time," he said, referring to Jean-Yves. "I have a lot of respect for him."

The same statement was made by the head of the French diplomacy, who stated in a press release published by his services in Ced d'Orsse that the restoration of trust between Paris and Washington will take "time and action".
