Joe Biden’s climate envoy, John Kerry, claims Biden did not fully understand the French submarine deal with Australia that he derailed.

While speaking to French media Tuesday, Kerry attempted to defend Biden by saying he had not been aware of the consequences his actions would have to U.S.-French relations. Kerry added, Biden sees the submarine crisis a “small event of the past.”

Last month, France lost a $50 billion contract to build submarines for Australia after Biden announced a controversial maritime pact between the U.K., the U.S. and Australia.

Kerry suggested the French should just move on despite Paris calling on Biden to make up for that diplomatic crisis.
