I’m very sad to be forced to leave. But there needs to be some reassessment being made. We shouldn’t underestimate the strength of the relations, people to people, you know. and I think this does not affect in any way the relations, which is so deep running among our two countries, among the people. There’s so many things we’re doing, so many projects we’re leading, and I’m still confident in the French-Australian, Australian-French cooperations. I think this has been a huge mistake, a very, very bad handling of a partnership. Because it was not a contract, it was a partnership. Partnerships are supposed to be based on trust, mutual understanding and also a partnership based, you know, on sincerity.
