The French government has welcomed news of a compensation agreement in the row with Australia over the scrapping of a French submarine deal. Australia's new Labour government says it's reached a settlement worth 555 million euros, to be paid to France's Naval Group. France's new defence minister says it's the 'turning of a new page' in France-Australia relations. Seamus also talks to Kathryn about the leaders of Germany, France and Italy reportedly planning a joint visit to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv within weeks. And France has been voting in the first round of parliamentary elections that will decide whether newly-reelected President Macron gets a working majority in parliament.
